      Nick Kenway of 3SixtyWraps in Northampton was unveiled as the winner of the Cool Cars competition for his eye catching wrap of a Ligier Le Mans prototype and wins £2,000 of 3M wrap products.

      Nick receives a roll of the popular 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 in a colour of his choice, including the new flip colour options, as well as a Toolbelt, Knifeless Tape Roll and free entry to a two-day vehicle wrapping course.

      With more than 40 entries received, Spandex and 3M were delighted with the high standard: “This competition has provided us with numerous innovative designs that would not otherwise have been seen by a wider audience,” said Leon Watson, UK general manager at Spandex. “We stock and supply a large number of 3M films, so it’s really satisfying to see so many imaginative and inspiring end results.”

      Added Pen Webley, marketing team leader at 3M: “We wanted to show our commitment to individuals in the vehicle wrapping community by running a competition that celebrated the creativity of wrappers, their singular designs and wrapping expertise.”

      Two runner-up prizes of a two-day vehicle wrapping course were won by Wrap Monkey in Sunderland for a slick BMW colour change wrap and Ecosse Signs in Bellshill, Scotland, for a colourful wrap design applied to a Honda Civic.

      The training courses, which are run by Spandex in conjunction with 3M, offer the chance to learn and enhance the skills needed to wrap vehicles with different types of materials, applying plain and printed films to a variety of recesses, contours and structures.

      The 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 portfolio now includes three flip colours - Gloss Flip Electric Wave, Satin Flip Caribbean Shimmer and Satin Flip Glacial Frost - that refract prismatic multi-coloured hues of shimmering purple, deep teal and soft blue.

      The collection of new film colours also includes on-trend Gloss Storm Gray, Satin Gold Dust Black and Gloss White Gold Sparkle as well as Cinder Sparkle Red, Gloss Ice Blue and Satin Frozen Vanilla.

      All 3M wrap products combine 3M Controltac Film with Comply Adhesive technologies to allow for repositioning. The films provide the ultimate adhesion, with air releasing channels giving a bubble-free surface finish, and are ideal for producing eye-catching vehicle detailing, decoration and full or partial wraps.
