Reminds me of putting on blue painters tape all over the car. I think I'd like it better if it were satin instead of matte.

nice, damn good job!

..but in my opinion it kills the lines of the car a little, makes it too bare. putting anything in the sides, even a list of parts companies down the door, or a small shite stripe will help out alot.

Interesting. Given my metallic black pearl paint job has turned to shit, I am looking for options other than a complete respray. How much did this cost?

The more I look at it, the more I like it. Very unique.

I'm confused about your thoughts on it killing the lines of the car. How so over any other solid colour whether factory or custom?

If your paint job is shit already, a wrap like this will make it worse.

our car has a sharp belt line, giving shades and reflection that we enjoy. having a matte color kills it in so many angles.

Don't agree. When I look at his pics I still see shading differences above and below the belt line, as well as other spots where the surface plane changes relative to the light. Not as pronounced as with gloss, but enough to not appear as a featureless blob of colour.
