Vinyl camo wraps on H2/H3? Anyone done it?

Postby 83rdrecon » Tue Sep 22, 2009 9:30 pm

Been looking at this stuff, seems like a good way to protect the paint and make it look very cool offroad.

What do you think?


I like this one Image so far... if I move out west then it will be the desert version...

I will have to try to dig it up but have a pic somewhere of an H3 I saw at Hummer of Orlando with a desert camo wrap on it. Was definitely different looking.

I wanted to do a snow camo wrap on my white H3, but decided not to. To expensive.
Miss you Rich! Thank's for all the memories!

There was a guy in a Toyota Fj with a desert camo wrap done up last weekend. Swung around and asked him about it, he was cool and told me some about it. I like the idea. A lot. My H3 is very good looking in the midnight blue, but I always cringe going off road when a branch hits it.....

There was a guy at the THCI event at the Badlands with a camo wrapped H2. Looked real good. I did not catch who it was, I missed the first day and he was not in our group the day I was there. I almost want to say he knew / owned the company. I remember there being a advertisement on the truck for vinyl graphics.

Yeah, I meant the pic wasn't all that great. Don't think I would do it but have seen this truck around town a few times and it looks pretty good.

I had a guy come in here with a traditional green/tan/brown/black colored camo wrap, but it had a steel tread plate phantom thing going on too. IMO, it looked terrible :yuck: It seems to be holding up though. No peeling or fading that I've noticed over the 2+ years they've been coming in.

One thing I never understood about camo though, when you're just toodling around town it sticks out like a sore thumb. I thought you were trying to hide :duh: :lol: and you look like a complete whack job parked at the grocery store :lol:

Some of the 'realtree' styles look pretty good except where the lamps are.

I always found it funny as hell when folks camo-wrap their ATV, park it in the woods to go hunting, then can't find it later :where: :where: :x :where: :where: :x :where: :where:

:lol:

There is a lifted H2 SUT I see around town occasionaly, but I never can catch up with him to chat. I think it looks pretty good, but it helps that it also looks like he uses his truck offroad and its not gleaming and shiney. It also seems to be holding up from what I can tell from a distance.

Don't think I have ever seen that one. You see it out on the west side of town near you or more around downtown?

I have seen him twice near Sand Lake and Turkey Lake area and a couple of times near downtown Orlando. Really nice truck, he has some Kayak pads on top of his Gobi.
