1M Sent to the Shop for a New Look!! Matte Grey! Ohhh

So, the 1M has left here to go to the Shop (Nevs-design) for them to apply the 3M Matte Grey Foil all over the car and in every place with paint they possibly can, also ALL Windows will have Tint to blend in with the Dark Grey Matte Finish.
I will get pictures over the next few days to see the progress.. Start to finish pics!
Then next the Matte Grey Painted wheels and Black Matte Kidney Grills and Side Markers..

Ohhh.. So Excited!

Matte grey wheels on a matte grey body? Seems like semi gloss black wheels to me is better choice. Just an opinion.

Another vote for gloss black wheels. Needs some contrast and it will go well with the tinted windows.

DON'T do everything matte. You need contrast.

Do the grill surrounds, wheels, window trim, sidemarkers, and rear diffuser in gloss black. Trust me. If you do matte grey and matte black, the car won't pop.

Look forward to seeing this though.

A very durable fancy wrap... but better then any wrap you may have seen as advertising or something like that..

and yes 100% removable... somewhat of a pain, but car goes back to original once un-wrapped..

If done correctly i.e removing all logos / lights / trim / weather stripping etc, the finished product is even batter

Yes. Its a plastic foile that can be removed. Normally to wrap a car runs about 1/3 the cost of painting the car. Plus afterwards, you can return to the original car color.

Just about every German TAXI cab is wrapped in that beige color now a days. No one wants to buy a used car in Beige bc they know it has had a hard life. Instead they buy a silver or black or dark blue car (colors that Germans like) wrap it in that Taxi Beige and wholla! Then when the time comes to sell their taxi they just peel off the foile.

Good input! Black wheels does sound good though. As mentioned maybe not too much matte and therefore the contrast is good. They Said Tuesday it should be finished so I am hoping to get it back to the showroom for Wednesday. Then Dave, you can take some pictures and we can have a good look over the new finish.. will be an interesting discussion
Thanks all!!

Im so glad I don't own a car with a matte black vinyl any more. My Ford Focus RS500 came with this 3M Scotchcal covering direct from the factory and it was a nightmare to keep looking good. To help, make sure you apply Swizzvax opaque wax to the finish otherwise greasy finger marks and water stains will be almost impossible to remove. If you can, get a reverse osmosis water filter system to give the car a final rinse after washing to stopped water spots drying on the surface. Good Luck though as the look is very good once done.
