Project Big White’s color change finally begins with the first stage of applying its new vinyl wrap.
It has long been said that "good things come to those who wait." We tend to agree with this ideal, as patience has always proven to be a virtue for us, especially when it comes to executing major vehicle projects.
For the last two years, we have been steadily modifying and improving our 1995 Ford F-350 crew-cab dually. It is an effort to rejuvenate the older rig, bringing it into the new age, both functionally and with its appearance. Simply typing "Project Big White" in this website's Search area will provide you with stories detailing the truck's transformation.
The proverbial cherry atop the sundae in this effort is a complete color change—from the truck's original Ultra White to Blue Metallic—by applying vinyl wrap from Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions, instead of spraying its panels with paint.
Completing the appearance makeover are lights and accessories from CP Addict and Mayhem Wheels' Monstir dually hoops with Toyo Tires Open Country HT/II boots, which we will focus on in a future report.
We joined Raceskinz (Simi Valley, California) co-owner Mike Smith and his intern, Tyler, one evening as they began the first stage of applying the vinyl wrap to the driver's side on our project truck.
The photos and video presented here are some of the highlights of the evening, including tools of the trade, as well as insights from Mike on DIY costs and the care that's necessary if such an attempt is made.
With the new color finally laid down, we now refer to the F-350 by its new name: BluMajik. Be sure to check here for updates, as we get closer to completing this exciting build.
