LADZ vinyl wrap a Mazda MX-5 (Part 2.)

Following on from part one of our Mazda MX-5 vinyl wrap showcase we are very excited to be able to bring you part two. In part one we showed the detailed preparation required before the vinyl wrap can begin, along with showing the doors and front wings being wrapped in KPMF Deep Red Gloss Airlease vinyl wrap.

We could now crack on in earnest with getting the rest of the vehicle wrapped, which is exactly what we did. Below we show you pictures of the various panels being vinyl wrapped by our expert technicians Darren and Lily.

The bonnet is looking very nice!

The next area to be wrapped was the bonnet. This Mazda MX-5 has curves absolutely everywhere and the bonnet is no exception.

Passenger side rear quarter.

Moving around towards the rear of the vehicle next up was the rear quarters. Above is a picture showing the rear passenger side quarter. Again you can see the large curvature around the rear wheel arches.

Boot completed.
Rear center brake light and surround.
Original boot badges back on the vehicle.

Pictured above is the boot area fully wrapped, including the rear brake light surround. The original boot badges have also been put back onto the vehicle. It’s amazing how quickly the car is transformed as each individual area is completed. As said before we take great pride in the work we do and will never rush things.

Door sills.

Now that the doors and rear quarters have been completed next up is the door sills. These were quite easy to do after some of the other parts of the car!

Red accents applied to the windscreen scuttle.

We spoke to our client John and asked him if he would like some red accents on the front windscreen scuttle as we thought it would enhance the look of the car, and he agreed. So we added the accents. It is little things like this kind of attention to detail that makes vinyl wrapping so much fun, you can quite literally make the experience as bespoke as you like.

Now that the majority of the car is fully wrapped we now concentrate on the front and rear bumpers. These can be especially tricky so great care and attention is required when wrapping them.

The front bumper in the process of being wrapped.

Above is a picture of the front bumper in the process of being wrapped. Most of the work is completed but there is still the procedure of trimming off all of the excess vinyl wrap and sealing the wrap off at the edges.

Rear bumper completed.

Above is a picture of the rear bumper fully completed. If you remember from part one of this Mazda MX-5 showcase there was some slight damage to the rear bumper. We ended up sanding and filling the imperfections. Because we managed to do a very good job of repairing the imperfections the finish is now absolutely perfect.

We are very happy with how the vinyl wrap turned out!

And here she is complete and resplendent in KPMF Deep Red Gloss! Our client John told us a childhood anecdote about when he was a 4 or 5 year old child living in Kenya in the 1960’s. His neighbour had a small red toy sports car and John said that ever since then he has always wanted a small red sports car. Well many decades later he finally has one!

This concludes our Mazda MX-5 vinyl wrap showcase, we hope you have enjoyed the journey with us. It is worth remembering that some great reasons for getting your vehicle wrapped are as follows:

  • It is around half of the price of a full paint respray.
  • It protects the original paintwork of the vehicle.
  • It can hide paint imperfections.
  • It is easy to remove if you ever want to revert back to the original colour.
  • It is easy to maintain.

30th June update, black accents added!

Our client came back for his post-wrap inspection and he decided that he wanted some gloss black accents adding. He wanted them on the bonnet and on the rear third (centre) brake light.
