    Hiya,

    Ford Escort Van Turbo.

    I'm wanting to paint the back end of it with a "fur effect (husky/wolf), maybe. Or a large blue eyes with black surround - a husky eye basically.

    It's for my kennel.
    I'm calling companies tomorrow but wondered if anyone might know of rough pricing, or maybe a site that can offer a stick-on version of things, rather just paint?


    Danke

    Thought this was a big troll untill I saw that it was for a business haha.

    Vinyl wrap is the new trend and more importantly can be removed if you ever come to sell the vehicle, for something like the designs you've mentioned it would be the best bet.

    Pricing depends hugely from business to business. Are you just wanting the back doors / window panel done or do you want it wrapping around the rear half of the van? (The former would be a hell of a lot cheaper)

    I'd hazard a rough guess at £300 -500, but your best bet will be to ring around. If it's just the back panels then it's not that big an area and they might be able to sort you a deal with offcuts from other jobs they've done for a cheaper price.

    Hi Piggy, instead of painting might be cheaper and probably better to get some vinyls and have it stuck on. I think I've seen those patterns somewhere in UK before, but for the life of me I can't recall. They weren't that expensive was around £600 or so.

    Otherwise you are looking at an airbrush job. As for how much, a flame job on the bonnet of a car can cost around £2000 for a very good one, significantly less for an average one. Try contacting an airbrush specialist in your area.

    Vinyl wrap is the way to go.
    If you were to have it air brushed you'd be looking at a minimum of 3 grand.

    Been given a quote of £1000 for vinyl.
    And £2000+ for airbrush.
