Background on Vinylwrapzs and Bud Weisner

After spending 47 years in the advertising industry I retired in 2006. I spent the 1st 25 years on the agency side. The balance of my career was spent on the sales side. I started off in national and syndicated radio then ended in the world of outdoor media; these are the large billboards that you see in your local markets.

I worked with major national clients; Anheuser-Busch, McDonalds, and Target Store’s. While working on Target I developed and brokered a deal with the Target Corporation to wrap a commuter train in printed vinyl.  This led to developing wrapping techniques for large boats (Hence the name; Mr. Vinyl). 

My true love has always been old race boats and the boat I chose to wrap for my show boat was a 1975 Magnum Maltese with Gentry heritage. I brought the Magnum to Illinois, where we are located. The direction of my company Vinylwrapzs LLC. turned when one of my best friends asked me to rebuild a Maltese. Since then I have purchased and sold a few basic hulls, brokered some sales, re-did the 1975 Racing Magnum and rebuilt the old 74 Maltese Thriller which can be seen on this website. I have six boats in inventory that I am selling so I can continue to move on to other Magnum Projects. 

The 1st new Magnum project can be seen on this web site which features hard to find original and reproduction hardware parts for classic Magnums and some Donzi’s. 

I hope that you enjoy our new website as we continue the restoration of Magnums from the 60’s and 70’s to their original glory.

Bud Weisner / Mr. Vinyl
