Tomorrow is the day...

Hey everyone! Tomorrow is the day I drop off my beloved 1LE to get a full wrap done. I'm going with the Xpel Stealth film. It's a clear, paint protection film (not just a vinyl wrap) with a bit of a frost so it makes whatever your factory paint colour is, a satin type colour.

I saw it being installed on a black GTR and I was sold! I ordered all black emblems from emblempros to compliment the car very subtly.

I should be able to pick it up on Wednesday, so stay tuned for pics!

Here is the same film installed on a gloss black R8.

That's gonna look totally sick on your 1LE! Can't wait to see it!

That R8 needs black rims, though...

You know it. I'm just tired about stressing over the paint and finish. This will keep it fully protected which means a lot less stress. It's a bonus that it'll looks unique and sweet!

I have had my eye on that stuff for a while. My next toy will probably have that done. Can't wait to see the pics.

Cant wait to see it. Are you leaving the the original matte black wrap on the hood or replacing it with the new wrap?

Okay I have been wondering, how do you take care of these matt finishes? Most car care products are formulated to make the car shine; So are they still okay on this finish or do you need special products?

I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out OP.

Keep in mind he is in Canada. The market may be a little different up there.

Also, I am not too familiar with the product he is using, but the cost of materials may make a substantial difference.

Regardless of matte finish or a high gloss laminated finish, you should NEVER use a general automotive wax when cleaning your wrap. Wash it with a mild car wash detergent/water mix, dry it, and then use a Teflon or silicone based polish that is specifically made for wraps.

Considering that's the price of a new paintjob, you either pay for it now, or you pay for it later?

For $5000 I think I'd spend it on something else for the car though. Like soemthing that gives it more HP and TQ!
