Fantastic work. As others have said, flat black isn't my thing but I have all the respect in the world for the DIY and having the time and patience to see it through to the end. But it begs the question...if I'm happy with my wife but prefer something a different...shade...can you vinyl a human being?

Great job! Plus, you are preserving the paint underneath of that, right?

Wow man very nice work! No way I'd be able to do this myself... Wrapping just the interior trim in carbon fiber wrap tested the limits of my patience so there's no way I could ever tackle a job like this!

Wow bro. Matte black isn't my cup of tea, but it looks good and you did some fine work.

Doing my front grille and window trim took like 8 hours, so I dont know how you had the patience for all that. Good stuff.

I will say you did a great job at it. but honestly i don't get this flat black colors that have become popular even the street rods are using them and other flat colors but its all in what you are into and i am in no way putting down your choice and as i said you did a great job.

Wow very impressive. Do you have to call your insurance and tell them you changed the color of your car? from bright blue to black would be cheaper i would say.

Looks like a LOT of work and you did a nice job. But ... I really don't like that finish... at all. No offense, sounds like most here like it. Just a preference thing.

I saw a lambo in Vancouver last week with the same flat black look. I have to say it looked interesting in a post-apocolyptic, mad-max way.
