Does UV-blocking vinyl wrap protect i3 roof?

  1. I do car wraps for a living…. It would likely only last a year or 2 (maybe) as the roof and hood get the most direct sunlight, therefore the vinyl basically gets baked. Which could leave your roof in worse shape then if you just left it alone.

  2. This is very helpful info -- always nice to get advice from a professional. I hadn't thought about this angle, but it makes sense to me. Thanks for responding.

  3. My "DEKAnnosaurus Rex" doesn't have the same ring to it. It almost sounds like something that would get banned from Reddit for inappropriate content.

  4. Somebody recently suggested getting a paint shop to clear coat it with an extra protective layer — not sure of that will provide the sort of UV protection you’re looking for? Might be worth a consultation.

  5. I’m not in the SW so I don’t have that extreme sun. I use 303 protection spray twice a year. Also for the i3 size, one of those temp tents might help. They are cheap and easy to take down before rough weather.

  6. As it happens, I recently got a bottle of this very product, which I'm going to use on the interior of my other (conventional) vehicle. It hadn't occurred to me that it might be a partial solution to my i3 roof dilemma as well. Thanks for the great suggestion!
