Looking to buy
This looks like Ascot grey and pure grey 2 tone. Description says candy white but its off-white compared to the number plate.

Hi Tim

Searched thread for vehicle wraps and found yours. Can I ask did you get your Cali wrapped, if so what colour and who did you use?

Thanks Kevin

Hi Kevin - I was planning to wrap a brand new one last year - my intention was to buy a white van and wrap the bottom half in a mint green - however I decided to cancel the van in the end as lockdown meant I was not likely to use it - so In short I didn’t ever do it - all I ca. Say is, there are lots of them and my suspicion is that price and quality are very closely linked - my advice would be shop around and get confident with what you go with - good luck Tim

Hi Tim

Yes I agree with you totally about price and quality. We viewed a conversion in Appledore which had been newly half wrapped by a local company in Barnstaple and gee whizz it was awful!

Taf showed me his which looks amazing but that's in Caerphilly 2.5 hrs away, so just weighing up our options at the moment.
Can I ask had you narrowed any particular companies down?

Thanks for coming back me.

Hi Kevin - if you’d like to send me tour email address I will gladly forward a couple of quotes at least - I think I had decided to travel as I couldn’t find what I wanted in Cornwall - it might be worth asking your Vw dealer ?

I wonder if Indium Grey or Copper Bronze bottom half would suit it?
Bronze an option, thanks. Was considering a petroleum blue also. Was hoping someone had already had a go with pictures!

Wonder what happened in the meeting when they chose the UK Two tone California colours, could they have got it anymore wrong?

Candy White/Ascot Grey - a real kick in the teeth for a free colour and a £300 one at £2,800.

Candy White/Copper Bronze Metallic - less said about this the better for me....

Candy White/Bay Leaf Green Metallic - looks stunning, just not a fan of green.

I love all of them tbh but can’t see the value in two-tone Ascot, as you say.
Would love to see people wrapping an Ascot van as it’s free, and I’ve ordered one!

As it’s her van, we are thinking about wrapping the bottom half of Ascot grey in a light blue, I’m fairly good with colour combinations, but have to wait till the van arrives in the flesh and go though the sample books.
Has anyone Unwrapped their California? , how long was the wrap on for and was there any damage, I know you apply a gentle heat to remove

Like the sound of light grey/light blue

Any thoughts on what colour would
look good on the bottom half of an Ascot Grey Cali?
Indium grey? Starlight Blue?
Most (all?) wrapped vans I’ve seen have a white or silver top...
I’m thinking of ordering a ascot gray and half wrapping bottom indium but have not seen any pics

Thinking of doing a Cotton Wool wrap to mine for all the use it's getting.
The UK is your lobster, at the moment.
