Installed my body wraps last night. took about 2 hrs to do 2 bodies and 2 wings. My painting skills suck so this was my first attempt at body wraps and i am very happy with the outcome. They are the REV RC wraps

wraps dont flake or peel off after one run

everything i have ever painted will eventually flake or peel off.......my wrap on my sct body has been on for almost a year and no corners or anything have peeled off

i will always order from Fastlane Graphix.....chad's work is top notch and IMO better than anyone else out there!

Here are my newest skins a la upgrade. They took 20 mins each to install and it was exactly what was ordered. They will never scratch or come off and they just look off the hook>>>

Wraps are awesome. You can customize them just like a paint job, they make the lid last longer because of the added strength and they last twice as long as paint.
