Keyed car, wrap car.

Whoever keyed my door 4 times then my hood thanks for the inconvenience. I feel sorry for all the jealousy you have in you.

My question is after I fix the scratches and then I decide to wrap it in flat black, how strong would the wrap be? How would it hold up to being keyed compared to paint? God forbid that were to happen again.

If they just lightly keyed it, it would probably hold up. It would scratch though since it's "rubbery"; but you could just rewrap that panel. At least it's cheaper than paint. If they really put some force into it, they would go right through the vinyl. I'd say it's a bit more durable than paint, but keep in mind the material is pretty thin.

Just know the folks that do it are oftentimes hurting much worse inside all the time than you may be feeling at that moment.
Only a miserable fuck would vandalize someone else's property.

Then I'll double wrap it haha. But they went down to the metal taking some with it. So either they pressed really hard or used something sharp.

I miscounted there are 5 separate scratches on the door.
