do you guys paint your body underneath when using wraps? I understand all wraps you can't get on perfect, and will have some small gaps. So do you paint the back or leave it clear? If you paint it, what color is best to use?

I don't paint mine but if you do you want to use a color similar to the section of te wrap you are trying to match. Both my Fastlane and Rev wraps fit well enough on my stick Losi buggy body that I decided not to paint.

Default Homemade wrap?

I'm wondering if it is possible to print my own wrap for my dirt late model? It is all flat application so I am thinking that I can use full sheet vinyl labels and a color laser printer. Any opinions?

Depends on the application.

Off-road, I use high tack material.
Some use ECO others thermal.

I put lam on EVERYTHING.

Chad at Fastlane is hands down the best!! I've personally had Up-Grade wraps and have seen the wraps from Darkside Designs which don't come anywhere close to Chad's work. Here is a pic of what I'm currently running and he's also working on a fluorescent version for the up coming season.





Go with Fastlane!

Like Tres and Alan said you get what you pay for and some will never like wraps.

CRD at the other side of the ocean for you USA guys is designing full body wraps with no paint needed at all at the inside. We cover all seems a little. And as far as we know we are the only one in the world to work like this.
So we might be a little more expensive but you save on the paint for the inside

We print with eco solvent and like my friends Tres and Chad laminate all vinyl too.
For wings we use high tack vinyl for the bodys normal pressure adjustable air release versions with black/grey glue.
And we are full custom so no ready design or samples to choose from.
Your imagination is what we put on vinyl.
And if you do not have anything on mind we can always guide you to the finest designs.
BTW we do some 1:6 scale offroad bodies too as you can see.

More samples can be found at face book "Custom Racing Decal" or www.customracingdecal.com

Paco

Keep sticking vinyl................
