Key things to know about the chrome wrap removal
Don’t try to do it at home!
The process of vinyl wrap removal is very tricky and may cause the significant damage to the vehicle’s original paintwork. Scrappers, chemical solutions used for the chrome removal can be dangerous for the car’s surface. That’s why we strongly recommend not trying to do it at home! Trust this job to the professionals who have the necessary skills and tools, and save your time and nerves.
Check the paintwork condition
One of the first things that we check when the customer aims for any car vinyl wrap, is the condition of the original paintwork. The more perfect it is, the better result we get. Sometimes, if we see that the car has been repainted, and moreover, repainted badly, we warn its owner. The chrome film removal might severely damage such surface.
That’s why a wrap should always be applied on the paintwork in good condition. In this case, the removal of the film would not damage it at all. Have questions?
