Issa Wrap: Rodney’s X8

Back in April I stopped by to see my homie Rodney at work. I had gone to get some video and photos of a car that he was laying some vinyl on but I stayed to get a look at his “new” look for his Cressida. See just a couple days before he had just finished putting the new two-tone wrap (yes issa wrap) on his car and I wanted to get some shots before he inevitably smashed it up. There are digital photos to pair these but since Rodney is all about that 90’s Forever life so I decided that it was time to release these scans from that day.

With that there comes the occasional love “tap” and demolished aero so it was nice to get these photos of his machine in show car spec.
