Do you wrap?

Got a good deal on some vinyl want to see what it would look like, so I started wrapping my car this weekend. Thought I'd share my experience with the community. Here's my progress after one weekend. Still gotta do both bumpers and the roof. The bumpers frighten me... The vinyl is Hexis matte metallic blue.

looks good, i think from a paint protection point of view its a great investment esp diyers. from a cosmetic view all the matte "frozen" is played.

Nope, blue's my favorite color, wouldn't want to look at something else every day.
