A new faction of car styles has arisen within car culture — the patina finish. It's a unique look, and people's enjoyment of it has seemingly come out of nowhere. At this point, it's not a fad. The love of a patina finish is here to stay, so now's the time to get on board.
Getting a patina finish is not an easy task, and many mechanics and body experts argue that this look is not healthy for the cars that achieve it. If you still want your car to have that undeniable patina finish without the risks, Rvinyl's Rwraps® Rust Vinyl Film Wrap is the way to go.
What is a patina finish? Patina is a brown or green layer that appears on the surface of metals exposed to the elements. A prime example of a patina-type finish is the Statue of Liberty. When France gifted the statue to the U.S. in the 1880s, it had a signature bronze appearance. As the metal oxidized over time, it developed the greenish look it has today.
Car enthusiasts expand the definition further when talking about cars with a patina finish. Besides natural oxidization, car enthusiasts look for layers of rust, dings and dents in the car's outer body. Even a dent from a shopping cart in a grocery store parking lot can add to a car's patina. People want to see that a car has lived some life by looking at its weathered and beaten exterior. History is what gives the patina finish its value.
Rust vinyl, or rusty car wrap, gives your car a patina finish without making you wait a few decades for it to develop. In other words, you get the look of rust without the ruin. Rvinyl made Rwraps® for the DIY car enthusiast. Anyone can give their car a wrap to make it look like something out of the apocalypse.
With rust vinyl, you can skip the decades of waiting and avoid actual damage to your car's exterior. Whatever make, model or year, you can give your car character and the feeling of history with a layer of rusty car wrap from Rvinyl.
Rvinyl's Rwraps® Iron Tread Rust Vinyl Film Wrap prints the look of rusty, treaded iron on a rolled sheet of vinyl. It comes in several sizes, so you can get the amount you need for either of these project ideas.

Choose the size roll you need of our Rwraps® Iron Tread Rust Vinyl Film Wrap, and you'll be on your way to giving your car a sweet patina finish without the corrosion.
Using rusty car wrap for your car has some benefits. Read on to discover eight reasons you should choose to wrap your car with vinyl for the patina look you crave instead of choosing other methods.
Paint is not the safest material for Mother Nature. It can give off toxic fumes that harm humans and animals. If you have leftover paint, it takes up room on shelves and can be challenging to dispose of. You'll have to ensure you follow the correct disposal protocol or take leftovers to a toxic materials disposal site.
Using vinyl wrapping is more environmentally friendly. If you order the correct amount, you'll have enough for your project without much waste. And since there are no toxic fumes, you can feel safe wrapping your car indoors or outdoors.
Painting your entire car can be expensive. You'll need sandpaper, cleaning solutions, primer and the paint itself to complete the task. In the end, you'll have spent a few hundred dollars on the project. And you may even have leftover materials, which wastes money.
Save money when you wrap your car in vinyl. Buy the size roll of vinyl you need for your project, and you won't waste any money on extra materials. The cost of wrapping your car in vinyl is less than the price of giving your car a decent paint job, especially if you're doing a partial wrap.
Painting your car is time-consuming. You'll have to take your car's body apart, strip down the paint, sand the pieces, add primer, apply several layers of paint and finish it off with a protective clear coat. This process can last many days, and that's if it goes smoothly. Car enthusiasts know painting can be stressful when unexpected problems pop up along the way.
Wrapping your car with vinyl to get a patina finish is a much smoother process than painting. All you'll need is a squeegee, a heat gun and the vinyl to complete the task. You can wrap your car anywhere — even outdoors if it's a dry day. Wrapping with vinyl is a fast, forgiving process, even for first-time vinyl wrappers. It's the perfect DIY solution to achieve a rusty car look.
Your car's paint and finish are some of its most valuable features. A well-maintained exterior helps raise your car's value if you ever plan on reselling it. Daily driving takes a toll on your car's paint, leading to inevitable scratches and signs of wear. If you live in a snowy climate, salt can eat away at your paint, leading to rust.
Vinyl film can preserve your car's exterior. The vinyl acts as a protective layer, shielding your precious paint job from salt, rocks and even the sun's harmful UV rays. Vinyl wrapping lasts several years before needing a replacement, so you can conserve your car's paint for years without spending too much money.
Vinyl is easy to maintain. While freshly painted cars need special treatments and protectants, vinyl needs water, soap and a soft brush. Paint requires constant care to keep its shine, but vinyl film keeps a smooth, unblemished appearance for years with minimal upkeep. Wash off any accumulated grime that comes from daily driving, and you'll be good to go. And since you're going for a patina finish, a little dirt will blend right in. Enjoy peace of mind with your car's vinyl coating.
Many people factor durability into their decision when choosing between paint and vinyl. Vinyl is a durable material that can protect your car from the elements all year long. And if a section of your vinyl wrapping sustains any damage, you can fix the issue with simple patchwork for a fraction of the cost of touching up paint.
The vinyl wrapping's quality affects its durability. That's why you should always choose a company that offers quality products from trusted brands. If you follow the proper application techniques, your car's rat rod wrap can shield your vehicle's paint job from harm for years to come.
If you're a do-it-yourself car enthusiast, Rvinyl's Rwraps® Iron Tread Rust Vinyl Film Wrapping is the perfect solution for you. How you apply the vinyl is up to you, giving you complete control of the product. Will you choose a partial wrap, or give your car a complete covering? Are you looking to give your car patina accents, or is having rusty-looking wheels more your thing? It all comes down to your preferences, letting you attain the exact look you're going for.
Choosing vinyl also helps you achieve your other goals for your car. If you have a project car, you understand it can be pricey to keep making upgrades. Since vinyl wrapping is an affordable option, you get to devote more money to other parts of your vehicle. Wrapping your car with vinyl is also easier, so you'll have more time to work on other tasks you need to accomplish.
An authentic patina finish takes years to achieve. You'd have to let your car sit in the wilderness for decades, exposed to the rain, sun and snow, to get close. And that's if it can even run after it's attained that classic patina finish. Skip that and keep your car in great shape with rust wraps from Rvinyl.
Natural patina finishes exist on old cars sitting around on people's lawns or in junkyards. Imagine the looks you'll get in your newer-model car with a patina finish. People will wonder how a car that rusty is still driveable. It'll be a conversation starter, and you'll surprise everyone when you tell them it's a vinyl covering. Your car's pristine paint job is underneath, waiting for the day you decide to show it off again.
