    I’m looking to repaint my 2005 V8 sport with new stripping etc,etc. any idea of the cost or ideas on paint selection. I still want to do some off roading but the scratches are starting to add up. Considering doing a camo vinyl wrap as well, any input is appreciated!

    If it isn't your daily driver, I would go to a wrap shop & see some colors or possibly some cool patterns or something. I am not creative.
    If it is your daily, consider paint corrections and a good wet sanding (if you like the color).
    I have seen some wraps on dually trucks that look amazing & they are huge! Price & imagination are your only limits.

    I got some quotes for painting my 2002 and it was between 6 to 10 thousand, thats if you want a decent job. You can always find a Maaco in your area.

    That is up to you. I like it!
    You could always have them use that as the base & have accents here & there...
    Options are endless...

    Here is a camo wrapped 5th gen.
    I really like it. It would get a lot of attention though...Screenshot_20190528-154307_Pinterest.jpg Screenshot_20190528-154406_Pinterest.jpg

    You should consider going with the brony wrap.

    Is that what you wrapped yours in, seems a little on the feminine side but hey I won’t knock your taste to each their own. The black camo is very cool!

    Cool you shoot with your pony? Your wife must be with you? Yeah I like the camo, to expensive to paint for that kind of scratch just to get it all scratched up! I’ll post a pic if I decide one way or the other. FB23FEDD-A6B4-4AD7-A346-DDCB6A9464CB.jpg

    This is my favorite wrap of all time!

    The digital camo looks really cool. I'd love to see that on a 4runner.

    Not sure how this got misinterpreted.
    I only ask please don't do the Bronies!
    That is not I nor a friend of mine who is shooting guns with "bronies".
    That is an insult to firearms!
    I shall have no part.
    Shoot the stuffed animals for F**cks sake.
    I shoot for accuracy & proficiency.
    This is a joke!

    I'm saving up for it. Sort of went a little crazy at this past weekend's 4 Coke 12 packs for $10 sale. So money is a little tight right now.

    Do you...
    Just no ponies, okay? LMAO
    Seriously, I think the larger digi camo would look better due to the size of vehicle we have.
    I like your initial pattern. Maybe make the "blocks" bigger.? Otherwise, I think it will look great.
    I would still ask a wrap company for a rendering of it... So you know what to expect.
    Paint or wrap... I cannot wait!
