If you are looking to wrap your vehicle but are not sure about wrapping the door shuts it might be best to consider the costs and the outcome of the full wrap and how you want the car/van to look.

What are car door shuts, and sills?

The door shuts are the entryways in and out of a vehicle, this is where you would see the interior door frame when opening and closing the doors. The door sills are the base of the door frame chassis.

What Are Door Sills?

The base area provides a step while getting in and out. These sills can have protective guards and are usually labelled with the car brand’s name. They are also known as car kick plates and help prevent any scratches that might happen when getting in and out of the vehicle.

Vinyl Wrapping a Car Door Sill

When it comes to wrapping the exterior of your vehicle the most common thing people see is the full wrap of the outer car. One area that gets overlooked is the door shuts/car entryways.

When it comes to opening those doors to enter or exit the vehicle, the first thing people will notice is the difference in colour in the area around the door frame. Sometimes the reason for not wrapping the door shuts are due to costs, it can be a little bit expensive when on a fixed budget.

Not having them done may save you a small bit of cash in the long run. If it’s not done while having an exterior wrap (that is everything you see on the outside of the vehicle and is body coloured) or if done badly they can massively affect the finished look of the car. Especially when opening and closing the door.
