Banger and smash

January 05, 2016

When Esign Media’s team of 3M Approved Vehicle Wrappers were challenged by managing director Zak Pickering to come up with a wrap design project using 3M IJ180Cv3 (supplied by William Smith) for one of the firms company cars, he hadn’t anticipated that they would turn a brand new BMW 4 Series into a rusty, beaten-up old banger.

An ORAFOL decorated Boeing 757 recently created history by being the first commercial passenger airliner to land on a blue-ice runway in Antarctica. The aim was to research the potential for utilising conventional passenger planes for the blue-ice landings instead of the usual cargo crafts which have been used in the past.

It has been said I’m quite partial to the odd old motor or two, and I would be pretty crap at my job if I didn’t actually like the subject matter, but when presented with a rather lovely looking V12 XJS Jaaaaaaaag, I was a bit surprised that someone wanted me to bung a load of sticky-backed-plastic around it! To my mind the XJS is a bit of a Marmite car, some people love it, some don’t, but I think it is pretty much an iconic design.
