what he said (lost for words). The brushed aluminum color ... (again what he said).

Pictures from 8 angles please and preferably with some (sun) reflections.

IMO this is the hottest 1M color around, you nailed that with a sledge hammer. Anything half gloss or matte black /dark grey will look smashing.

I wonder how the film over the hood will handle the heat from the engine?
All in all, it looks great! (Wish I had €2400 laying around )
Are there any precautions needed once you can wash it? (i.e. no pressure wash, etc.?)

I suppose with the type of Foil (3M), it will be fine. As its for cars and 'hopefully' the took all this into consideration when coming up with the idea
I cant wash it for 3 weeks. They will be sending me some instructions on how to wash etc.. soon. I can imagine no pressure wash and having to use a particular type of cleaner for the Matte finish. This car will be in your area pretty soon, so you can get a good look at how things progress over the next few months.

It belongs to a customer that has just been stationed there.. Once all the work is done he will pick up the vehicle and take it home to Stuttgart. He mentioned he saw yours while he was driving his rental, but couldn't keep up with you on the roads!
