Are You a "Petrol Head"?

by Leanne Arnold on December 19, 2018  in Category_Blog ArticlesCategory_Vinyl Pinstriping

Auto-racing is among some of the most popular sports in the US, which adds to the already-thriving car culture and expansion of “Petrol Heads.” A Petrol Head, otherwise known as a car enthusiast, spends a lot of time, effort and money customizing and polishing-up their vehicle. If you have one of these car-lovers in your life, it’s a safe bet to choose a car-related gift for holidays and special occasions, but if you’re not an enthusiast yourself, that task can seem daunting. Don’t be afraid to seek out a little help! Here are some ideas to get your creative shopping juices flowing.


old carCar Tech: Both Functional and Fun
Some of the coolest modern-day car accessories are car tech items. Innovative features that soup up the inside and outside of a vehicle, be it practical or just plain cool, can always be found on any enthusiast’s wish list. Consider some accessories that enhance their in-car music, commuting in general (like GPS systems and mounts), or even dash cams and accessories to help with safer driving.

 

Customizing and Detailing The inside of the car isn’t the only focus of car fans; oftentimes, the outside of the vehicle is just as, if not more, important that the interior. From simple things, like quality wax and buffers, to more elaborate like pinstriping, there’s something to please everyone that likes looking chic in their vehicle.

If you know your friend or loved one frequents the car wash for detailed cleaning, or they can be found on warm days doing the cleaning themselves, consider a similar genre for gifts. Things like wash mitts, special car shampoos, microfiber cloths for drying, and spray wax are all great options.

If they’ve been especially good this year, consider putting together a gift basket of several detailing items. For the enthusiast that loves displaying their personality, customized vinyl decals are simple yet fun gift options. Custom wheel covers and vanity plates are also sure to please.

If you really want to spoil someone, consider paint customizing options, like pinstriping, and gift them a certificate for the service. No matter your budget, there really is an option for everyone that any car lover will be sure to appreciate. Showing someone how much you care doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, either. Put some real thought into your gift, and no matter the monetary cost, it will show the recipient that you know them, and that they’re important- and that’s what they truly want in a present.

Rear window decal

I found it easy to put on. I paid the extra for the additional overlay so it would last longer. Looks good !!!

The Falcon is complete!

OMG, my wife wanted this sticker for so long, and I finally bought it for her as a gift for Mother's Day. She absolutely loves it, and it stands out so much! The difficult part of the install was it didn't have a perforated spot near the middle to allow one to start from the middle and work your way out, so there are some minor spots that have tiny creases. The good thing is the tiny creases are not noticeable enough to worry about. That's the only reason I give it 4 stars. Other than that, the quality is great! My wife's Falcon is now complete!
