Litho printed aluminum
Mustang Concept Car
•Duplicate look and feel of leather on aluminum
Ford designers carried their custom theme across the aluminum trim in this concept car with a decidedly non-aluminum finish. The wrapped leather trim is aluminum printed with a custom faux leather finish. The unique finish is an economical option making use of the production tooling. Development of the finish began with baby hornback crocodile skin. Our designers translated the leather finish onto aluminum using a combination of traditional metal decorating processes. Key to the success of the concept was alignment of the pattern across mating parts in the vehicle.
