We did something special this year for the 2016 goldRush Rally 8; A group of exotic super hero car wraps for the Taylor Lynn Foundation. TLF is a non profit organization that raises money for kids in need, in the form of micro grants.
The super heroes rallied from Boston to Los Angeles, handing out souvenirs to kids along the way. There were 5 total cars, and the drivers were dressed up in costume to fill the part. The windshield banners on each car had a meter to reflect the percentage of the fund raising goal that has been met as they progressed through the rally. By the end of the rally, the cars had raised tens of thousands of dollars, which was all given back to kids in need, through the Taylor Lynn Foundation.
McLaren 650S: The HULK
The Hulk wrap was designed as if the character was bursting through a wall, with his face at the front and the remains of the broken wall crumbling toward the back.
Ferrari California T: Captain America
The Captain America wrap was designed to mimic his suit, with the shield hanging on the door. The blue of the car is a digitally printed texture to look like roughed up leather, complete with the stitched A on the roof and red / white accents.
Vorsteiner McLaren MP4-12C: Superman
Our own Ryan Tounsley in the Protective Film Solutions McLaren went as superman. A base layer of step and repeat lettering was applied first, to provide a subtle embossed texture of the Superman suit, replacing the kryptonian logo with sponsors. The cape was printed on chrome vinyl and laminated in satin to give it a silky shine.
McLaren 570S: Spiderman
The Spiderman wrap was designed to look like Spiderman’s suit. The digitally printed texture was well worth the challenge of trying to line it up across all of the body panels around the car. This wrap was installed at our Protective Film Solutions partner shop in Orange county, so we knew they could handle the task.
Porsche 991 GT3: Deadpool
The Deadpool wrap was designed in 100% vector format using Adobe Illustrator. Even the black of the car is is textured to look scratched, worn, and full of bullet holes. Details you likely would only see in person. The car started off as Lava orange, and two days later was covered in blood splatters. Sure, Deadpool is far from PG13 but lets face it. Kids still love him.
This wrap was printed on Avery Dennison MPI 1105 premium cast wrap vinyl, and protected with DOL 1060Z gloss lamination.
