LightWrap™

A universally applicable product

Why doesn't my vehicle have a pre-cut kit available?

Gone are the days of simple shapes on vehicles. Manufacturing technologies are allowing automotive manufacturers to create much more complex and organic designs. Take the 5th Generation Camaro for example and compare it to the newer 6th Gen... the design language and complexity of the body appear to be decades apart. This is also true with lighting design, where LED and laser lighting technologies have allowed designers to do things that weren't possible in the past, blessing us with super modern, 'Tron-ish' designs.

Sign vinyls and PPFs used by other companies mostly cannot conform to these futuristic shapes, and pre-cut overlays are almost impossible to install perfectly with edge-to-edge coverage. To make matters worse, anyone with a vinyl plotter and an internet connection can make and sell "tint overlay kits."

We decided to bring light tinting into the modern era by creating LightWrap. Our revolutionary tint features all the technologies you find in the best vehicle wrap vinyls, enabling it to conform to complex shapes while also providing a perfect base for effects like carbon fiber and printed tint.
While we painstakingly craft our pre-cut kits to fit lights edge-to-edge, there are many where that proves counter productive or even impossible. In those cases, we've found that it is both easier, and more economical, for the end user to be provided with a sheet of LightWrap™ instead. You can find several of those difficult decisions in our store.

The 2015 Dodge Charger Headlight presents an interesting compromise, inside edges that need an exact cut with an outside curve that demands stretch. We created a Hybrid Tint Kit, requiring techniques used in sheet installation along with our pre-cut designs, placed where they are most helpful.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade Headlight is almost exactly opposite. While the headlight itself is as simple as can be, placing a cutout is an exercise in extreme frustration. With a full sheet, the simple dome can be wrapped and finished within minutes, presenting far fewer problems.

Headlights and Front Grill Chrome wrapped in Dark Smoke
With a universal kit, you are able to tack down at the front of the light, then pull back along the contour lines, achieving the "glass" look without much difficulty.
To make a precut kit for this light, we would have to start from the top, and you would still have to stretch it over the front and rear, with less overall material to work with. Or the kit would be in multiple pieces for a single light. The added difficulty for the installer in this case makes it a poor candidate for our pre-cut designs.
