    So can I go into a Ford showroom and buy anything that resembles this, or do I just keep hanging onto my Focus RS Mk3.
    At least people could buy a Stratos that resembled the rally car

    The red on the RB logos can't be produced by the inkjet.
    They have to be cut from coloured vinyl and applied onto the spaces left for them on the printed wrap vinyl.

    I doubt if the showroom cars have so much carbon fibre in them.

    Power levels back up to 'Group B' era, !!!!! when will this be restricted again? although suspension etc., has been improved since then.

    Re: How to Wrap a Modern Rally car

    Sorry for hijacking the thread!

    I am just struggling to see the relevance of a modern WRC car to the man on the street.
    I have had proper Mini, Sunbeam Alpine, Sunbeam Tiger, Escort Mk2 RS2000, Impreza Turbo, Focus RS Mk3 and Stratos (rep) and they all gave me some sort of attachment to the sport.
    Now as with Touring cars, I feel no emotion to rallying, but at any classic car show I will make a beeline for all of the above.
    Sorry if it is just me.
    Nuff said
