    Yes. I was sent photos of this when it was still in the paint shed. Actually the first unit is done with wrap and decals. I am guessing anything further will use the same process. They are uncertain how long this will stay on. Naturally, weather prevents a safe trip down that way.

    Excellent! Does MRL still have a Helena contractor wash their engines after a shove up Mullan? If so, the washing process might destroy the wrap...

    Those wraps are a lot more durable than people think. Most all the trucks you see now days that have heavily decorated trailers are full wraps and many of the big carriers use the same materials to apply logos and names. You have to basically touch it to know it's not paint. Another place wraps are used now days is in the top levels of racing, Formula 1, Indy, Nascar, etc. because it weighs less to do a wrap than painting the cars.
