Chrome Wrap

Quick question... Is a chrome wrap illegal in Ontario?

Could find any threads on this...

That Chrysler Crossfire belongs to the owner of restyleit, a local wrap shop at Markham. You can check their website for more info.

Is that painted or a wrap?

When I was down in Miami a few years ago we happened to be down when the Gumball 3000 was finishing up there. There was a Gallardo that wasn't wrapped but painted like that and two guys from the UAE driving it.

It looked nuts on the Gallardo.

It's a wrap and it doesn't look good when you are close of the car.

BMW Laval did that to attract people, it must a total pain to wash/maintain + it does not reflect that well.

My wife's sisters boyfriend chrome wrapped his Gallardo, says its perfectly legal here in BC. It does look quite "orange peel" like, not as smooth of a surface as i would've expected.
