How come? I've had 3 upgrade wraps and they're pretty decent. They definitely add some strength to the bodies I think, but any body wrap would do that. The technique I use is a squirt bottle filled with water and few drops of baby shampoo and a hairdryer. Spray the body and backside of the decal, this buys you some time before the decal dries. 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.
