Matte Blue Pearl Vinyl Wrap

I've decided on a color, and have ordered material to wrap my car in matte blue pearl vinyl. I will keep updates on this thread as the project progresses. The color will look very similar to these photos:

Oh my... How much will you be spending in total on materials?? As mentioned above, all I can find for a decent price is black and white. All other colors seem to be double of triple the price just for the vinyl.

The roll I got was $695, which I would consider reasonable for enough vinyl to do a whole car.

Looks like a great way to celebrate that UK NCAA Championship win.
Guess I'll have to pick a different color now that you beat me to it.

Yes, leaving bits of carbon fiber exposed. Going to eventually do 1M carbon fiber mirrors and a carbon fiber lip too.
