    What am I not seeing in the first picture? It looks like you stuck some clear tranfer tape across the front and took a picture.

    It looks like it is a clear matte film.

    Or is that translucent etch material. I've often wondered what that would look like.

    The flat color look sure seems to be catching on and i must admit even white looks good

    likes that ya showed some close ups of areas to show how good & clean you wrapped it

    nice job

    looks like really nice, clean work... but... and maybe it's a girl thing... but I don't get it. Why would you wanna take a shiny factory paint job and matte it? Am I missing something? Do people think that looks good?

    This is creates a much cleaner, sharper final product in wraps. it does take some time, an hour or two but in the end it really makes a difference.

    We did two HHRs for the same company. They wanted them both done in at the same time, so we subbed one of them out to another local company. When they were sitting next to each other, you could clearly see the differences. The subbed out car was sloppy looking with cuts all around the door handles, vehicle badges, headlights. Looked AWEFUL!! Ours however looked clean, neat and if you didn't know any better (and with out close inspection) looked like it had been painted that way.
    Obviously the installation is increased by a couple of hours depending on the vehicle, but its worth it when you look at the final product.
