Local Motors Vinyl Car Skins

After the completion of the Local Motors Custom Car Skins (CCS) competition we thought it was a good idea to explain these vinyl car skins. But first, take a look at the winning design:

This is Local Motors' CEO Jay Rogers' 1971 Mercedes 280SL with the winning design by André Costa
, a.k.a. Lude.


Following the announcement of the CCS winner we decided to make a video explaining how designs like these actually make their way onto Local Motors vehicles. The following video stars
Ariel Ferreira (Public Relations) and David Rhia (Lead Engineer), who explain the two different customizable vinyl coatings available for the Rally Fighter.



Tell us what you think!

The interview needs to be practiced ahead of time, that will allow the answers to be more precise. The camara man needs to direct the camara to the person speaking. The interview helps to understand better the "skin" vs. painting, but could be done more professionally. Thanks for the time to explain the process.
