One of the benefits of signwriting a vehicle is the ability to cosmetically change its image, by making a shoddy paint job look brand spanking new, enhancing the features of a unique model, or updating a business’s livery with continually evolving brands.
Every now and then it’s worth stripping back to the bare bones and starting afresh – or as we like to say, give it a birthday.
Our 5-tonne Isuzu truck has sported different wraps — flames, purple & yellow swirls — but the paint job was red… Time to get BIGified! We stripped the graphics and sanded right back to bare metal (birthday suit?), then etch-primed, primed, and finished with two-pot autothane paint which was matched to our BIG brand’s Pantone colours. We even got right down to the nitty-gritty by preparing and painting the chassis, wheels and missiles. Yes, missiles!
The BIG branding was then laid up in 3M 180C ‘easy apply’ vinyl.
Our show pony is now on the street – a BIG sister to the matching van.
