Clear coat popping, anyone ever wrap?

Hi all, the clear coat on a lot of my upward facing surfaces have bubbled or appear to be starting. Got a quote of $5-6k to repair.

Has anyone every wrapped their whole excursion? I would want it to be factory paint color.

Thanks!

I did consider this and asked a couple of shops. Prices here in No VA are in the 4-6K rang and top of the line quality was upwards of 8K For now, I'll live with the various battle scars on mine.

yeah....seems to be just as expensive to wrap fully as it is to paint it fully.

From talking to the one shop I am willing to deal with, quality of work and all.

Around $5k is spot on for any truck or large SUV.

Another possible option would be to get the bedliner/under carriage spray from Raptor, they have a pretty decent stock of colors, some are really close to stock ex colors.

Nice thing about the bedliner spray is you don't have to be as skilled to make it look nice like with paint. Kid I bought mine from did it, and it actually looks pretty nice, I have gotten several complements and random "that is awesome what did you use?"

I wouldn't personally have picked black, and have been kicking around the idea of doing it over, since I repaired the rusty rockers, to a different color. And might as well spray the whole underside while I am at it.

Even if you do go the route of a wrap, the flaking clear will still bubble underneath the wrap.

You're better off spot-treating it with a light wetsand and some rattle-can clear coat.

Wrap it yourself. Vinyl isnt that expensive especially if you buy a lot. A friend and I wrapped his Tesla model S about 3 years ago. Still holding up well and only spot that doesnt look great is inside the door jam.
