    It's interesting and unique if nothing else... I'm not really sure what I think. I think i may like it if there were other mods to make the car look more aggressive. Like maybe lowering, wider stance with different wheels, a front lip, and what if you took out the mesh from the grills?

    I like the first pic that makes it look matte black. Not a big fan of CF, but I like the idea of wraps in general. It's definitely very well done, excellent work!

    Looks like it was a good advertising exercise for your business and is obviously professionally done. I think it looks cool as matte black but the CF is over the top, but as you said, you don't really care what people think and just wanted to show it off. From that perspective it's a cool project! You need to finish those last little bits of silver though to match because those look weird.

    Makes me contemplate doing that to my bumper, granted my bumper is a steel pipe frame with aluminum plates riveted on, it still could be hot looking.

    i really like the badges. u could make a killing on those. i think the whole car in a little much though but not hating. would be a cheap fix for someone with sh**ty paint job.

    Do you have to wash that thing?

    I wondered about that too, if there is a certain way it would need to be washed. E.G. the Veloster that comes in the matte grey has to be washed a certain way, I believe it even comes with some specific cleaning products when you first buy it.

    I think its pretty cool. Not the best looking thing, but you stated why you did it and that's cool. The workmanship on it looks great, which says a lot for your business!

    Do the corners or anything like that ever peel off?

    I've heard that said and disagree. I know when we wrap demo firetrucks, a lot of the times the end customers love them because they can be driven around the country for a long time and when they are sold, they unwrap pristine paint. the only part i could see doing any harm to the paint would be if the installed got over zealous with a razor blade.

    nope. just wash it like usual and dont worry about drying it or having water spot issues. oh and no waxing either.

    if you wrap around corners like you should, the flagging and shrinking is minimized. areas that are stretched on and then hard trimmed such as the mirrors shrink back a bit. i'll likely re-do those this spring. I need to redo a door as well becasue some asshat kids decided to silly string all the cars on the street one night and apparently silly string has a solvent in it that eats vinyl... so it left a scar on the vinyl. >
    yup
