I love the frozen metallic look, even though I'd never get it on a car because it can never be fixed with standard paint techniques. But a wrap could probably be color matched and just that section re-wrapped.

Aren't both 3m and Avery vinyls self healing though? A few passes with a heat gun and any fine swirls/scratches should disappear.

I've been considering wrapping my car in a high gloss black or silver (3m 1080 or Avery Supreme) but I have concerns about the gloss vinyls being more of a pain in the ass to maintain than my current paint.

I was just reading an email from the guy who did the green gt500 . He says the Avery wrap is better than 3m and yes a heat gun can take care of those problems it's called post-heating.

I know that Vindictive Vinyl did a 2014 Mustang GT in Mystic. They also did my M235i Carbon Fiber textured mirror covers but they are in Twin Lakes, WI.

All those colors you've shown look sharp. I agree with Wolfe - I think matte is on it's way out. Also, I'm not sure if it's true, but I've heard that matte is hard to clean when it needs it. Maybe the surface is too rough to easily wipe with a cloth? I don't know - what I'm saying is no more than hearsay and speculation.

My personal vote would be an obnoxious green. That Sonic/Deep Impact blue is common.

I don't like the GHIG. I have an affinity to blue cars. I am like a homing pigeon to them considering we own two of them & have owned 5 of them all together. I love the sonic blue but my favorite was my Montego Blue on my old BMW 328.

I think the matte blue metallic would look sharp!

I really wish 3m or Avery made a Mystichrome wrap or something equivalent to that color. I think it would look killer on an fbody, especially with some 18" weld rts wheels.

If your still thinking the route of vinyl versus paint, give Vindictive Vinyl a call. Tho they are just across the border in Twin Lakes, WI, they service all of northern IL. Dan Florek (cell) 847 271 3421, (office) 262 358 2626 [email protected].

Pulled down a few more pics including that mystic mustang and sons matte work vehicle as well as his old 350z done up for Paul Walker memorial cruise 2 or 3 years (?!) back, also using matte black, and another GTR.
