    So I decided to go for a different look on my show car.
    I am going to wrap it in matte black, including the wheels.
    this thread will be a work log for the process.
    I ordered Avery A9 EZ in black with matte laminate to see how that goes.
    My other alternative will be to print my own black.
    here is the car as is sits now.

    That is a beautiful car! Always loved the GT-C's!! What kit is that? Looks sort of like an Origin or similar? How about some motor specs?

    I rather have 2 layers of vinyl to protect against chips and nicks than a 2 mil layer of just black.

    Well the vinyl came in today.
    After laminating the black I was close to pulling back on this since the vinyl looks horrible. But after a couple of hours the silvering went away.
    here are some pictures of about 1.5hrs of work.

    Thank you !

    Thank you !

    Not sure about Crummy but they are overrated, which is why I don't have one. I have a 1JZ.

    Do you have a close up on the rear window pillar where you overlapped the roof seam to the side seam behind the door? Wonderig how conspicuous it is on the finished job.

    I have 20% precut and ready to install. I wanted to wait till the magazine feature was done.

    I will post them as soon as I finish.

    I wasn't sure if I hope this was going to go so I only ordered 30"x30' which wasn't enough to do the front bumper and driver side. I did order more and it should be in tomorrow.
    I will wrap the air ducts first with small vinyl pieces then the outer surface.


    Your got it !
