Possible exterior refinish?

Possible exterior refinish?

Postby JuneauCabbie [OP] » July 3rd 2015, 9:55am

Been busy, sorry I haven't posted in a while...

Now that my '03 Safari taxi van has over 270k miles, I'm thinking that maybe I should remake the exterior to reflect its long service. Maybe like this wrap job?

A few years after the wrap, it will work it's way towards that.
Have you ever watched them trimming it with the razor blade
(through the paint)? After going through in 9000 places I
suppose the moisture and oxygen has plenty of good places to
begin a new ecosystem.
