Saw a military-looking pickup truck with this odd sequence of letters on the passenger door.
Any idea what it means?


Layed not sprayed?

Huh?

I don't get it.

CB, you must be correct. Start at the hashtag and stretch them to a tweet title. Thats it exactly. #LAYEDNOTSPRAYED

It has the sheen of a flat vinyl

It's a tag for car wraps. I.e. Wrap laid on the car not paint sprayed.

i'd never heard of this stuff. for those that are curious like me, i looked at the website and they said the advantage is that you don't have to wash it, and it's cheaper. i don't know if i buy all that. i'd like to see how it's applied too.

If that O.D. green "paint job" on that truck is actually a vinyl wrap, it looks damn good.
I really thought it was paint.
Has anyone ever got a price quote for doing this to a vehicle, and compared that to the price for a paint job?

Not "cheap" per se, but cheaper than a nice paint job, more than Earl Scheib or Maico. Yes, you still have to wash it. Yes, plenty of people have issues with damaging car finish when left on for a while, like rust pockets from trapping moisture. The big argument is whether this is a installation problem, or just the idea of having a wrap over a car.

That very well could be a wrap. I don't really understand the rust issue, how does the trapped moisture penetrate the paint?

I don't know, maybe small imperfection in paint somewhere? Mind you, this isn't after a couple months, it's been after longer term use.
