Land Rover Defender 110

Complete Graphics wow client with 3M Wrap Film Series 2080, colour change wrap!

When Oxfordshire based company, Complete Graphics were approached to wrap a 2007, Land Rover Defender 110 khaki green recently, they immediately turned to William Smith to access the free sampling service.

“The client was really impressed with the speed that the samples arrived” explained Marketing and Graphic Designer, Abbey Churchill, “we were able to compare the colour and finish of each option before the client selected 3M™ Wrap Film Series 2080, Matt Military Green for the wrap.”

The custom design saw the roof, wheel arches and grill remain gloss black while the remainder of the vehicle was expertly wrapped in the 3M™ material.


3M Wrap Film Series 2080 is a highly conformable, 90 micron cast film ideal for colour detailing and full wraps on a whole host of vehicles and proved a solid choice for the demands of a Defender 110.

The vinyl was capable of all the intricacies of a 110, including the rivets. The conformable film layers were well capable of fitting into and staying in the deep recesses below the windscreen area,” comments Abbey.


Additional features of 3M™ Wrap Film Series 2080 include, 3M™ Controltac™ which minimises the initial contact area of the adhesive allowing for easy sliding, tacking, snap-up and repositioning, and micro Comply™ technology designed to permit air to exit through air release channels to the edge of the material.

Both features which Complete Graphics appreciated during the wrap, “the ability to reposition the material made for easier application, as we were able to position the vinyl in the right place before applying it. Plus, the micro Comply™ technology 3M™ have developed, achieves a flawless finish.”

“The customer loved the final wrap! When he arrived, he couldn’t stop walking around it to take a look at it all. It was exactly what he was looking for and was amazed with the finish. The best testimonial of the job was the client’s young son who jumped up and down with excitement when he first saw the wrapped vehicle at the workshop!” (See the full video from Complete Graphics, from wrap process to final reveal at the bottom of the article!)


Abbey added, “We would definitely use 3M™ Wrap Film Series 2080 again as we too were impressed with the high level of finish from the film – the matt finish is true to description. We also value the peace of mind we have from the 8-year warranty as does the client.”


“For us as a business, the success of this job also gave us an opportunity to explore new avenues of marketing, which has boosted our engagement with the company brand. The colour and finish of the vinyl compliments the countryside setting we are based in, and with our client’s permission we were able to drive the vehicle through the farm and take some off-road shots that are fitting to the type of car – a win-win situation!”


“The people at William Smith have always been so helpful and friendly, they clearly have a strong emphasis on customer service, something that we as a company really relate to. The speed and efficiency are always spot on. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as a material distributor,” concluded Abbey.
