Van Wrap Gone Bad

Today I had my lawn irrigation pump replaced. They go out every 2-4 years.

The photos are of the pump installers 2014 Sprinter Van. As normally done, businesses wrap their vehicles with the companies advertising, looks very professional. To me, it looks like the wrap installer used a razor blade to do the trimming and he cut through the paint causing rust in every corner and panel edge trimmed. Just passing this along should you ever wrap your vehicle or parts of it, ask how they trim it and how long they’ll guarantee against rust and defects.

    1. Ray,
      I am looking for a new cargo van for my BOV. Because of this, my eye is drawn to all the Promasters, Nissans and Fords Transit. Of all I’ve seen none show signs of rust like this one.

    1. Rob,
      I would not buy a Sprinter mostly because I don’t like diesel engines. Seen to many reports of horrendously expensive repairs.
      The repairman said he has been driving this van since brand new and it has been living in Florida its entire life. Appears to be the results of a bad wrap job.
