FFs have been wrapped for a colour change for a couple of years, also stripes have been put on other Jensens for fun etc. The wrapping was done in these cases to look like a normal paint job, so most people didn't know. I might do mine. A Union Jack on the roof, some stripes, etc. Great if you are doing a rally, if you have kids, if you are still a kid, if you are doing a youtube vid [insert funny hand sign emoji].

I have been thinking about wrapping pre war aluminium bodies instead of painting them, straight on the aluminium. Durability, simplicity, less sanding, no over spray or masking. Hopefully kinder to the aluminium.
