To Wrap Or Not To Wrap, That Is The Question



Check out this fully wrapped Mazda CX-3 posted on Instagram by vip_brickell_autozone! The design seems to be Asian inspired with what looks like dragon scales extending from the windshield onto the roof. Paint splatters throughout the body is also well done and extremely detailed down to the various shades of each splatter.

Here’s a closer look at the CX-3’s bumper and hood wrap:


While wrapping your CX-3 is a great personalization option the extra layer also doubles as paint protection during its lifespan. If someone or something scratches your car the affected panel can easily be re-wrapped (or leave it as is) to match the rest of the body while the paintwork underneath remains showroom fresh. At a glance you wouldn’t even know a car was wrapped if done well.

On the downside, a full wrap will be expensive but still cheaper than a new coat of paint, however the finished product’s quality is dependent on the installer.

With the use of computer programs the customization options are endless! Would you consider wrapping the CX-3? If so, what design and color would you choose?

Cool wrap design but I have no idea what it's supposed to be.
If I had extra cash I want to wrap it to look like Tron!

Somebody was drugged when they did the CX3 but I like the blue one.

It's not too bad. The splatters are nice...

Whoa! The second one looks psychedelic! Think the CX-3 would look better as a Tron car.

I'd like to wrap it same colour, in white, but in a carbon fibre texture, I think that would look nice. Not readily noticeable unless you get up close to it. That, or wrap the roof in matte black, minus spoiler, and wing mirrors, to make it match the rest of the plastic trim and rims (I may photoshop this idea to see what it would look like xD). But wrapping full body anything other than white I wouldnt do, I like the colour.

Someone paid to have that done to their CX3? To each their own.

So, with some free time, I did play with photoshop, and with the photoshop skills of a 3rd grader, I gave the CX3 some more black accents and carbon, and voila.
