Expensive but good quality - Fastlane
Cheap and actually pretty good quality - RevRC

I personally use Rev wraps. They hold up great and alot of customizing optiongs available.

Fastlane to me is a bit much to pay, $50 for a body wrap. PLEASE DONT BASH ON ME HERE! But its just my opinion. Sure the wraps are great quality, but still not worth that price.

$25 shipped for Rev, can't beat that! Ships fast too!!

Also, as far as shipping, I did however order a custom name sheet from Fastlane and it took F O R E V E R to get here. I finally called after about a month and he said he has been real busy and they would ship out shortly. I got them about a week after the phone call. Thats ridiculous. And that was just a name sheet, I could only imagine a body wrap.

Rev shipped my body wrap out quick, I got it in like 2 weeks!

You ordered July 5th. We shipped July 21st. Not quite as long as you say.

It doesn't matter if you order a sheet of names or $300 worth of wraps, orders are processed in the order they are received.

Thanks

Does anyone have a video or some pictures of how well fastlane wrap goes on a body.

I found with the upgrade wrap it did not cover the whole body (You have to paint under for the last color) I did not like that because I dont know where to stick the wrap and where to leave space and it was a big mess.

Before I order a fastlane I would like to know if its the same story.. Got my design and color all picked out looks sweet

Then use the hairdryer to heat it up and stretch the decal a little. Squeegee the water out, pop the air bubbles with a needle, and you should be good to go.

But if you're looking for a concourse airbrushed finish, a wrap won't give you that, but it's a 10 from 10 imo.

Hmmm...I put in some time on this subject researching buggy wraps. I was told by quite a few to go to Upgrade...Didnt find anything that I really liked there...Checked out a few more...Nothing there....

Then I checked out Fastlane.I couldnt remember the name of his company but,I did remember a black suv with some nice ass graphics.. I had spoken to Chad at the AMS earlier in the year. I was a die hard paint specialist!lol! Chad's website out runs all others!
I knew what I was getting before it got here.
After many,many emails back and forth with Chad,he got me hooked up with what I was looking for...Personal service,a great selection and custom touches with 2 wings and a body for 50.00....Im satisfied.
Ya know,As busy as Chad is he always returned my emails promptly...and I send em' at weird hours...just as Im doing this at a weird hour.
In my opinion...you cant beat his service or product at any price and I will be a return customer.

Chad and Fastlane...it doesnt get better.

I dont know about anybody else, but I ordered my grafics for my buggy & starter box and had them in hand about 12 working days later. I consider that very good and will be ordering again. The quality/durability is unmatched from other brands that I have seen.

I will second the motion on Fastlane...

Chad does excellent work and is willing to try new and different things. He has done a great job for us personally and for the company.

Keep up the great work!

I like Chad at Fastlane and Upgrade.

What put me on to Fastlane was the fact that, it was 100% customizable. He can do pretty much what ever you want. I dont know why people say it takes a long time.... Well Customized work always take alittle longer.... But FASTLANE is well worth the wait.

Upgrade do good work but the last time I looked on their site, it was just pre-made templates that you can pick the color. I hear people say that chad is expensive. Well go get a quote for a painted body with the same design. It will cost over 100 bucks, from a GOOD flawless painter.
