Hey, is there anyone who has wrapped their car before? I’m looking to maybe have it done (professionally) but I’m specifically worried about the paint.

my paint is fine, no clear peel or rust, not missing paint anywhere but the clear coat is thin from wear and tear. It’s low enough that I can only get it paint corrected one last time before it’s too thin, which I just won’t risk anyways.

but has anyone had theirs wrapped/ removed wrap to where it pulled off a considerable amount of paint? I’ve seen a lot of people mentioning Hyundai/genesis coupes have really bad paint for this.

any recommendations on what brand is strongest/ least abrasive when removing?

I had mine wrapped professionally, but I had major paint damage before I did it. He had to sand it down, remove some dents, and smooth it all out before doing it so I wasn't really concerned about damaging anything on removal (which I haven't had to do yet so I don't know how that will go). Honestly if you're concerned at all about damaging the paint job you have I probably wouldn't do it. If you're ok with possibly pulling it off in a few years and doing another wrap then you'd be fine. I may or may not have my car long enough to find out how well it comes off. I went with 3M 1080 though which is one of the industry leaders so I would hope it would release well.

Here's a before and after from my wrap shop, hard to tell but there was major clearcoat damage on the roof and hood among other things. Oh yeah and the gas cap was white...lazy previous owner.
