A True Sports Car
Patrick Segura with Subblefield Screen Print Company in Albuquerque, N.M., submitted this project for local retailer Golf USA. The wrap was designed by Steve Insausti and installed by Michael Fromer.
“Our client, who owns a construction company and a retail golf store, wanted his VW to look like a golf ball on a golf tee,” says Segura. “ We took an actual golf tee to a local woodworker and had it scaled up to 36", turned in alder wood, painted and attached to the roof of the beetle using combo wood/metal screws. The tee was sealed with an outdoor varnish. He has it parked in front of his store, which fronts a very busy street here in Albuquerque.”
The graphics were printed on 3M IJ180C with 3M 8519 Lustre Overlaminate and 3M IJ8171 Perforated window graphic film, using an HP9000s solvent printer. Installation took Fromer about 12 hours. For more about Subblefield Screen Print Company, visit www.stubblefieldprint.com.
