I bet dust is an issue. Looks like a Dexter kill-room!

LOL... nice job, this car is awesome! For some like myself, I need 100% satisfaction to make what would be a near a $60K purchase...

OP, sorry for the thread jack, I was provoked...

Sorry for the wait all.. It was delayed as we had to tint the windows also and they ended up doing our initial request of putting matte black on all the Chrome pieces too. At first they said they could not as the pieces were too small but did it in the end. They drop the car off to me at 5pm. Therefore I am going to put a load of Pics on here before the wheels are painted this week. More likely a Dark Gunmetal Matte color, to give it a better contrast with the body. What do you think?

1M Pics Matte Grey Nearly finished Project

Pics! Finally.. Just a few as it takes forever to upload, the wheels are just on there while the originals are painted 'Nagaro Silver Matte' (Ready on Tuesday). They did great, nice detail, Foiled everything that was paint, and matte black on Side Markers and Grille. They said in 3 weeks any small bubbles will drop out. The tint was also done by them but only a stripe at the top due to legal reason I like the Matte Eyelids and Window Trim. I will upload the rest through the day. Whaddya think so far?

The Wheels are at another Shop having them Painted in a Nagaro Silver Matte Paint.. Its a very Dark Grey with Matte finish to set a better contrast to the body. I will have them back Tuesday, switched over and new Pics put up.

Like it a lot, of course you need to post much more outdoor pics. Nice detail where the window trim seems to dissolve around the b-column!

Questions:
- Was it meant to/does it look like brushed aluminum?
- How much did it cost? What place? Satisfied? Recommend?

You beat me to the masking of the LED daylight strip: Nice!!. Although my target is to do this on the inside of the glass in black (same time as taking out the orange reflectors). Have you considered masking on the inside?

Once the Actual Wheels are back on I will take a few outside Pics, as a finish project (For now) If you need specific pics though, let me know as I can take them while I have the Car. Yes, I didnt request the B Pillar to be done but it came as part of the deal.
In certain light it does look like a brushed aluminum, We literally requested a Grey Matte, but was 2,400Euro plus tax (unless you have tax free status here) Im satisfied for sure, i was nervous at first as I am doing this for a customer based on his request. I cant clean the car for 3 weeks though. I would recommend them for sure. the guy who did this was hugely helpful and really wanted to take on the task. The LED lights was also something the Guy did as an extra without request, he had the go ahead to make it what he thought would look good based on as he goes along. I think black would have looked very good to, with the Black Kidney Grills. inside mask, not considered, I can imagine that the Foil would heat up quicker underneath which could cause it to peel or bubble.. im not sure?! the work was done at; http://www.nevs-design.com here in Bamberg, Germany
