64 • WRAPS • 2 0 1 6 PRODUCTION & INSTALLATION Color Change Mirrors ONE PIECE: • Hardware removals: up to the installer to wrap on or off the body • Installer level: advanced • Material: cast • Install time: one installer 20-60 minutes • Install difficulty: high • Durability: medium to low For a straight color change wrap, the installer has the option to wrap the mirror in one piece (left mirror) or in several sections (right mirror). CUSTOM MIRROR: • Hardware removals: up to the installer to wrap on or off the body • Installer level: intermediate to advanced • Material: cast or calendar • Install time: one installer 20-40 minutes • Install difficulty: medium to low • Durability: medium to high In the case of color-change mirrors, the client should be given a variety of choices—one piece, overlay strip on the edge (with Mold n' Hold or two-tone piece) or custom. One piece has the high- est price point and longest install time. The other options have a lower price point and install time. Also, only advanced installers should wrap a mirror in one piece as they have the best chances for long-term durability. Intermediate installers can wrap a mirror in one piece, but the chances for long- term durability are low, which can mean costly revisions and unhappy clients. Interestingly enough, a majority of cli- ents, when given the option, lean toward the custom mirror that has the lowest price point and is easiest to install. The one-piece mirror, which impresses install- ers, often does impress clients as it "looks just like paint" but it's not "custom." Who wants a regular Nike shoe when they can get a custom Nikeid shoe? Same concept.
