Here's a cheaper way to theft-proof your car

You've put a lot of effort into acquiring your car and you don't want someone to steal it. But how can you avoid car theft? An owner of a brand new Volkswagen T5 Transporter apparently found the answer. But rather than installing hi-tech security alarms, he came up with a clever solution: he vinyl-wrapped it to look like an ugly piece of junk.

Here's what the front of the T5 looked like before it was vinyl-wrapped.

The owner hired Clyde Wraps, a vehicle graphics company in Scotland, to design and wrap the top-of-the-range van in custom vinyl decals that make it look like a clunker. Clyde Wraps describes the process:

"Once we had completed the artwork – which is not mirror imaged for either side too – we printed in full colour digital vinyl and finished in a Matt Laminate to further dull the colours used. It goes without saying the van stands out in a crowd and our customer had great pleasure in telling us later that it only took 3 days for the police to pull him over to ask what was going on with all the rust…"
