What You’ll Need:

Before you get started, make sure you have all of the necessary supplies. Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

  • Vinyl wrap (make sure it’s specifically designed for use on RC cars)
  • Utility knife or scissors
  • Heat gun or hair dryer
  • Squeegee or credit card (for smoothing out air bubbles)
  • Masking tape (optional)

Step #1: Prep Your Vehicle

The first step is to clean your car thoroughly. This will eliminate any dirt and debris that could interfere with the vinyl wrapping process. Use a damp cloth and some mild detergent if needed. Once it’s clean and dry, carefully measure each section of the car so that you know exactly how much vinyl wrap will be required. Don’t forget windows too!

Step #2: Apply The Vinyl Wrap

Now it’s time to apply the vinyl wrap. Start by laying out the piece of vinyl on a flat surface and use a utility knife or scissors to cut it into the correct size and shape for each part of the car. For tricky areas like around curves or corners, consider using masking tape as a guide for cutting straight lines. Once each piece is cut, peel back the adhesive backing and place them onto your RC car one at a time starting from one end of the vehicle. Be sure to smooth out any air bubbles with a squeegee or credit card as you go along so that everything looks neat and even when finished.

Step #3: Secure The Edges

Finally, it’s time to secure down all of those edges! To do this, heat up the edges with either a heat gun or hair dryer before pressing down firmly with your fingers until they are securely in place without any gaps. This will help prevent peeling over time due to vibrations caused by driving on rough terrain or jumping off ramps during playtime.



With these three easy steps, you now understand how to vinyl wrap your RC car! Have fun customizing your ride and showing off its new look at the track – just remember not to take yourself too seriously while doing it after all; It’s just an RC car! Now get out there and start racing!
