An Introduction to Light Wraps

In the realm of automotive aesthetics, achieving the perfect shade and finish on a vehicle's lights is a pursuit undertaken by countless enthusiasts. Among the popular techniques in the automotive world, 'light wrapping', stands out as an emerging favorite. When speaking of light wraps, two major brands have carved a niche for themselves - Rtint & ORACAL.

These brands have simplified the age-old process of changing the appearance of headlights, tail lights, and fog lights. Traditional methods, such as spraying, often ran the risk of uneven finishes, excessive drying times, and even permanent damage. But with the innovation of vinyl tint films, the process has become more efficient and user-friendly. Imagine wanting to achieve a smoky effect on your tail lights. While spray might demand a day's work, a vinyl wrap can be achieved in much less time, without the prolonged drying or risk of drips.

Furthermore, the assortment provided by ORACAL and Rtint is commendable. These brands have a palette that caters to every aesthetic preference, ensuring that control over the vehicle's appearance remains where it truly belongs – with the owner.


Basics of Light Wraps

Diving deeper into the world of light wraps, one begins to understand its underlying simplicity. At their core, light wraps are adhesive films. Think of them as specialized stickers tailored for headlights, tail lights, and fog lights. Though the process may initially seem daunting, especially when compared to just spraying a tint, the accuracy and finish achieved with wraps are unparalleled.

The variety is expansive. From blackout wraps that provide a deep, matte finish to chameleon films that shimmer and change color based on light angles, there's a wrap for every desire. Moreover, these wraps promise longevity. Unlike sprays that might fade over time, a good quality wrap will maintain its allure for years.

Diverse Applications of Light Wraps

Beyond aesthetics, wraps serve a functional purpose. Over time, plastic light coverings can fade and become cloudy due to weather elements, and the glass might be at risk of breaking from road debris. Wraps provide a protective barrier against such adversities. In terms of aesthetics, one can experiment with hues like electric blue for headlights, emerald green for tail lights, or even a sultry smoky yellow for fog lights.

For those looking to push the envelope, wraps can be utilized in more advanced applications. A fascinating use is laminating them to create uniquely colored carbon fiber or chrome films. Imagine merging the iridescence of Rtint™ Chameleon with the luster of SF100 Chrome – the resultant Neochrome wrap is nothing short of mesmerizing.

Why Consider Light Wraps?

  1. Personalized Aesthetics: Wraps offer an opportunity to resonate with your personal style. With countless shades available, your vehicle can undergo a complete transformation.
  2. Safety & Maintenance: Lights often discolor and lose clarity due to UV exposure. Wraps offer protection against such UV damage.
  3. Economical Choice: Instead of investing in brand new lights, wraps offer a cost-effective alternative.

Legal Aspects of Wraps

Venturing into the world of vehicle customization invariably brings up legal considerations. Not every shade or reflection level is permitted everywhere. Dark or highly reflective wraps could be restricted or prohibited in certain jurisdictions. It's paramount to research local regulations and, when in doubt, consult a professional to ensure your wrap is within legal limits.


DIY vs. Professional Installation

DIY Benefits:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Opting for a DIY route is generally more pocket-friendly.
  • Options Galore: Online platforms offer a plethora of choices in terms of shades, textures, and finishes.
  • Personal Touch: There's an inherent satisfaction in undertaking and completing a DIY project.

However, DIY installations demand precision and awareness of local regulations.

Professional Installation Benefits:

  • Expertise: Professionals bring experience to the table, ensuring a flawless finish.
  • Legal Knowledge: They're generally aware of regional regulations and standards.
  • Guaranteed Results: Most professional installations come with a guarantee, ensuring peace of mind.

 

Types of Light Wraps

  1. Spray Tint: Requires precision and a steady hand.
  2. Plasti Dip: Easily removable rubber coating.
  3. Cover: Essentially large stickers affixed using double-sided tape.
  4. Tint Film Rolls: Offers the most precision in application.

Rolls vs. Pre-cut Kits

While rolls promise customization, allowing for every curve and edge, pre-cut kits are designed for specific models. But vehicles, even of the same model, might have slight variances, and rolls provide the flexibility to accommodate these nuances.

Wrapping up, light wraps are more than just aesthetic enhancements. They are protective shields, personal statements, and sometimes, pieces of art. As the trend grows, brands like Rvinyl continue to expand their offerings, ensuring that there's something for every vehicle and every owner.

Give Your Vehicle a Personal Touch

Enhance the look of your vehicle by applying headlight, tail light or fog light tints by shopping at Rvinyl. We offer smoke, blackout, chameleon and a variety of other film tint colors for more than 50 different cars and models.

I recently purchased Oracal transparent yellow vinyl for a DIY project, and I am extremely pleased with the results. The vinyl is easy to work with, and the color is vibrant and eye-catching. It adheres well to a variety of surfaces, and I was able to create the exact look I was going for. The finished product has held up well over time, and the vinyl has not peeled or faded. Overall, I would highly recommend this vinyl for anyone looking for a high-quality vinyl option for their crafting or decorating needs.

This is an easy way to get a custom look without having to smoke the whole light. Looks really cool on my Toyota Prius because the light is clear.
