Default should i paint or wrap my cc

Hello Everyone. I am new to this site. I have recently purchased a 1990 Club Car DS. I purchased this cart for my daughter. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with paint or wrapping their cart. As for the paint I can get fairly cheap. The wrap on the other hand Is going to cost me up words of 400 dollars. Also as for paint should I go with a single stage or a base coat clear coat paint. Suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Camo wrapped mine..... $200.00 for wrap and did it with my girlfriend. We were not perfect with it, but still came out very nice. You can see pics in my album.

Wrap here as well, same price and the wrap hides a multitude of sins that paint would show.

Did either of you have to remove the body to do the wrap and where did you get it from? Thanks in advance

You can buy a new body for around $4-500.

I got mine from Everything Carts (a forum sponsor) for $180 18 months ago. They shipped 5 sheets of 4 feet by 2 feet and I did the cart using 4 panels so I now have a complete sheet for a spare. The product is made by 3M and is really good quality. I had not done this job before but it was easy and took about 4 hours. If you go this route I suggest that you watch a few youtube videos to learn some techniques first.

I removed the rubber trim and guards so I could get clean edges but it is an immensely satisfying job as the cart transforms before your very eyes.

Go for it.

Dave

Funny you should start this thread, I'm attempting a wrap tonight with my wife on my Club Car TRX build. Wait that didn't come out right? I really didn't want to pull the body as it seems overwhelming, but I had both front and rear pulled in 30 min and that was my first time, and I'm very glad I did. Ill sleep better knowing it is wrapped from head to toe (per say).

No but seriously, Ill be posting pics on my build thread if you care to follow. What Dave Box says about it hiding body scrapes and scuffs is very true and his advise about watching a few YouTube videos is good advise, dont take it lightly. Heres one that was very helpful to me:
