Would definitely consider wrapping them in gloss black. How much would that cost? I have no clue....
Where are you located? It should be very inexpensive, it's only a few dollars of vinyl for such a small area

There are quite a few installers in LI if your feeling brave by some gloss black 3M 1080 and give it a shot yourself. It's a small enough area without any compound curves.

On average, how much of that is for labor vs material?

Car looks awesome btw!

That Grey is awesome!! How long does/can the wrap last before it starts to look chewed up? Does it show imperfections in the paint under the wrap? Also what percentage is your tint?

I think you changed my mind on wraps. One thing I about the "old style" of wraps was the fact that the paint was usually matte. I hate matte paint. Looks like a beater care that you're prepping to paint, but then never get around to. Looks like your wraps are "shiny" like normal car paint. Very nice work.
