Episode Notes

In this episode we take a break from our step-by-step format and take a close look at vehicle wraps with the help of one of the pioneers of vehicle wraps, Troy Downey from APE Wraps. All your questions will be answered, including the differences between wraps and paint, how long they last, where to get one, how much they cost, how to care for a wrap, and so much more. You’ll also see our Motorz project truck (a 2005 Ford F-150 SuperCrew) get wrapped from start to finish by Troy and his son, Tommy Downey. To top it all off, Billet Badges made custom one-of-a-kind Craftsman emblems for the sides and tailgate of the truck!

This episode features Olivia Korte as our Motorz Girl and also has our regular segments, Partz and Letterz. In “Partz”, Chris talks about a Craftsman heat gun, AMP Research Powersteps, the Fluidampr harmonic damper, and the “2 Go Keyless” Automotive product line from Digital Guard Dawg.

As always, be sure to stick around to watch our out-takes at the very end!


This episode features an original Motorz theme song by Jeremy Pritchard.
