All that said, unless I was changing a car colour and the car was worth more if left in the original paint (like my old 911) I would still go for paint rather than a wrap.
It looks like consensus of opinion is to paint it. So that is probably the way I will go. I had an old 911, a 1984 targa sc. one of those cars I wish I hadnít sold😩. I would not have entertained putting a wrap on that car, but in that case originality is king.
