He wants to do everything, door jambs, engine bay, etc. Vinyl wraps don't address those areas. They also typically only last 3-5 years.

Advantage of a wrap is that its a bit more durable and doesn't really scratch. Disadvantage is needing it redone over time. The shops that I've talked to say it's great for a low price color change, if you're ok with seeing your OEM color when you open the door, hood, and trunk. Otherwise, a re-spray costs a similar amount.
