We Speak RIVIAN at First Class Autosports Miami - From PPF to Color Change Wrap!

Updated: Jan 5

At First Class Autosports we have had the pleasure of working with many different R1 Rivian trucks. This specific R1T EV Truck is a real beauty and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to give it a makeover with a brand new vinyl wrap and color change. In this post, we'll walk you through the process we used to transform this Rivian R1T from it's sleek Forest Green OEM color to a bright gloss orange vinyl wrap, as well as some of the other detailing work we did to make this truck shine.

The Rivian R1T Truck is an impressive vehicle that combines advanced technology with rugged capability. It features a range of up to 400 miles on a single charge, can tow up to 11,000 pounds, and has a unique "tank turn" feature that allows it to pivot on the spot by spinning its wheels in opposite directions. Additionally, the Rivian Truck has received rave reviews for its off-road performance, thanks to its adjustable air suspension, four-motor electric drivetrain, and skid plates to protect its undercarriage.


But the R1T isn't just about performance and capability - it also features a sleek and modern design that sets it apart from other pickup trucks on the market. The vehicle has a distinctive front-end design that includes a light bar that runs across the top of the grille, giving it a futuristic and high-tech look.

When working on a vehicle like the Rivian R1T, it's important to use high-quality materials and work with experienced installers to ensure that the wrap job is done correctly. At First Class Autosports, we use top-of-the-line vinyl films and have a team of trained professionals who have years of experience wrapping vehicles of all types.

The process of wrapping the truck is similar to wrapping any other vehicle, but there are a few unique challenges to keep in mind. We started by thoroughly cleaning the truck to ensure that the wrap would adhere properly.


Next, we carefully measured and cut the wrap material to fit the truck's unique contours The R1T has a lot of curves and angles on its body, which means that the vinyl film needs to be carefully trimmed and fitted to ensure a seamless, professional finish.


Additionally, the R1T has a lot of high-tech features, such as cameras and sensors, that need to be carefully worked around during the wrapping process to avoid damaging them.




The application process was a bit tricky, as the wrap had to be precisely positioned and smoothed out to avoid wrinkles or air bubbles. If by any chance a part of the truck didn’t look the way we wanted, we removed the panel and reinstalled it to make it look the best way possible - after all we are humans and mistakes can happen. However, with our team's extensive experience with the Rivian platforms, we were able to get it done perfectly and efficiently.


Of course, the vinyl wrap was not only one part of the project we completed on this truck, we also performed a full detail, including a thorough cleaning of the interior and exterior, as well as a paint correction to remove any scratches or cosmetic damage on the original green paint. We also applied a protective ceramic coating to the truck's new wrap to help it stay looking great for years to come. This ceramic coating also makes the maintenance of the Rivian much easier due to it's hydrophobic properties.

Another project we recently completed was a complete transformation of a Rivian R1S using Stealth Paint Protection Film to transform the finish of the OEM Black Paint from Gloss to Satin! This gave the Rivian a menacing new look with it's body lines sharper than ever. To acomodate this new look we blacked out all of the trims and emblems on this spectacular EV SUV for a full blackout transformation! Read more about this project here: https://rb.gy/wmwq3n
