How much vinyl do I need to fully wrap my car?

The best way to calculate how much vinyl your vehicle needs is by this simple formula below:
note that all vehicle vinyl films we sell is 5 feet (1.52m) wide except for PPF (4′) and Architectural (4′)
length of your vehicle x 3 (for the two sides & the top of the vehicle from front to back)
+ extra for bumpers and mistakes (5′ to 15′ depending on complexity of car and your skill level)
always round up to the closest roll size
Example:
a 2016 Ford Mustang is 188 inches long:
(188″ x 3) + 10′
= 47′ + 10′
= 57′
the closest roll size is a 5’x60′ so purchase a 5ft x 60ft roll

♦ Small size cars can be fully wrapped with 50 to 55 feet / 15 to 16.8 meters of vinyl.
example of vehicle sizes:
Audi A3 & A4, BMW 2 & 3 series, Mitsubishi Lancer, Subaru Impreza, VW Golf & Beetle & Jetta, Hyundai Elantra, Nissan Sentra, Mercedes C-class

♦ Midsize cars can be fully wrapped with 60 to 65 feet / 18.3 to 19.8 meters of vinyl.
examples of vehicles:
Chevrolet Camaro, Corvette, Ford Mustang, Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, VW Passat & CC, Nissan Maxima/Altima, Audi A5 & A6, BMW 5 series, Mercedes E-class, Hyundai Sonata,

♦ Full-size cars; small SUVs, small trucks & small vans need 65 to 75 feet / 19.8 to 22.9 meters of vinyl
examples of vehicle sizes:
Audi A7 & A8, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Impala, BMW 7 series, Mercedes limousines & S class, Hummer 3, 4Runner, FJ Cruiser

♦ Full-size SUVs, trucks & minivans 75 to 100 feet / 22.9 to 30 meters of vinyl
