WRAP IT UP
ProPickup magazine’s Project Super Crew gets a new look; Camoclad body wrap puts finishing touch of sweepstakes truck
Ten hours after ProPickup magazine’s 2011 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 4×4, Project Super Crew, rolled into Truck Supply & Outfitter’s shop it hit the street with a whole new look.
Richard Trahan used custom 3M vinyl graphics to transform the magazine staff’s paper concept into reality.
Trahan, who owns Advanced Signs & Graphics and works closely with Pixus in New Iberia, Louisiana, installed the full body wrap that was transformed from a digital concept to the wrap material by Camoclad, well known in the outdoor world for their camouflage body wraps for vehicles, boats and ATVs.
Camoclad is expanding into custom graphics for commercial businesses, and Project Super Crew is just a sample of what they can do for customers.
Trahan, a master vinyl graphics installer has been doing wraps of this type form more than a decade.
The big white Ford Super Duty wasn’t much of a challenge other than working the graphic wrap around the truck’s array of roof lights and headache rack.
The project truck is headed Monday for the Dallas Convention Center where it will be displayed in ProPickup’s booth during the Great American Trucking Show, August 25-27.
ProPickup’s Ford will be given away early next year as the grand prize in the Project Super Crew Sweepstakes.
Sweepstakes entries can be filled out online or in person a the GATS display booth.
