The Force is Strong With This Star Wars R2-D2 Volkswagen Bus

This is what happens when a Star Wars fan has an old Volkswagen bus sitting around in need of a makeover. Instead of just giving it a new coat of paint, the owner decided to give it a wrap that would turn it into R2-D2. Instructables user mimaki cg60 spent over 50 hours taking measurements and mapping it all out on a computer. Wrapping the bus took too many hours to count, but the resulting Volkswagen Droid was well worth the time and effort.

Instead they created a whole new layout specifically designed to fit the shape of the van, keeping the droid's head as the front of the bus. Precise measurements were taken and then they used CorelDraw and Photoshop to lay everything out and decide where each element would sit once they were ready to install the wrap. According to the instructable, the finished print was 3 feet by 35 feet of vinyl that had to be carefully applied to each section of the bus. The Force is definitely strong with this Volkswagen.
