I paid $350. Pics don't do it justice, there's a nice metal flake when the sun hits it

Is this the same company that advertises in the back of Excellence? Their website sells black and silver overlays.

Yours looks great. I might hit that part of the door handle that rest under the door pocket lid with plasti dip.
There are videos on youtube of people using it cover faded and scuffed up exterior plastic trim around the window and wipers.

$350 is a great deal!

Can I get a link to their website? I wonder if it'd be even cheaper to do it one color.
Johnny Danger speed yellow, for instance.

I'm sure that whatever colour's in Johnny Danger's car it is real carbon fiber and probably interwoven with Kevlar (like my clutch disc) as opposed to a wrap. The wrap on that interior is a huge improvement over what was. I'd prefer glossy black for my car -understated class.

Thanks for the comments, Hydrographics is a film dipped in water, it's not a carbon wrap. Here is the website link, just ask for Gregg.

I would say that is an excellent price if it includes doing the center console. Beautiful job.

Funny, my car looks exactly like yours...BEFORE the hydrocarbon.

If I wanted the same shiny effect as hydrographics, but instead of prints just have a single color, what would be the best way to do it? Regular engine paint and enamel? Your finish is very shiny, and I like it a lot.

Regular car paint will work, just be sure to use an automotive grade clear coat to get that deep shine
