Nov 13, 2021



People have been personalizing and customizing their cars for, well, as long as there have been cars—and one of the newest and coolest ways is with vinyl wrapping. If you’re already thinking about how your vehicle will be transformed when you shrink-wrap it in an entirely new color, then the next step is understanding how do you calculate vinyl wrap you need to wrap car?


Here’s a good way to help find out how much vinyl your vehicle will need:


*length of your vehicle x 3 (for the two sides & the top of the vehicle from front to back) + extra for bumpers and mistakes (5′ to 15′ depending on complexity of car and your skill level).


*Always round up to the closest roll size.


For example:
A 2016 Ford Mustang is 188 inches long:
(188″ x 3) + 10″
= 47″ + 10″ = 57″
The closest roll size is a 4.98″ x 59″
so purchase a 4.98ft x 59ft roll.
