The Metro, which was originally blue, was wrapped in chrome and carbon vinyl on Thursday 22nd September as a part of a feature for the channel 5 automotive series. Presenter Jonny Smith says, “Vinyl wrapping has become a real trend in the automotive world and we wanted to find out more about how it’s done and see what a difference it can make to the look of a car… even an old banger like this one.”

Sean Davis, Director at Creative FX, says, “It’d be a great car to have – it might not be to everyone’s taste, but it’ll certainly make you stand out from the crowd!”

The programme will be aired on Friday 28th October at 7.30pm on Channel 5.
