Pete,

Is your car at AMLI (or was it on Friday)? I was there and noticed a satin white V8V. Glad you're enjoying the car.

Hey Todd, Funny you mention that because when I went to go pickup the door struts I saw the same satin white Vantage also. Unfortunately that's not my car (it's a 2009+). That particular car has 3M brand satin white vs the Arlon. The 3M is a bit more matte whereas the Arlon has a bit more shine/pearl to it. They both look nice but in the end it was between the Avery & Arlon.

Here is a photo of the 3M... if you compare it to my pics you'll see the difference.




Will have more pics of my car to post later today, it came out amazing!

Here is a pic of the Arlon for comparison. This is my rear bumper unfinished.

Pete, I like yours better. Must say I'd love to see the Pearl White too.

Some completed shots... honestly they don't do the finish justice. The level of detail here is important. Some shops will cut corners, but i'm glad to say they took their time to do it right.

Thanks guys... Yes Xpel makes an excellent satin clear bra. I thought about it, but then again my color was a bit to yellowish for me so making it satin clear would only make it worse.

The shop did wrap a brand new GT3 in Xpel satin clear, check it here:

NEXT UP: FORGED!

Updates:
Picking up my wheels today! Will have pics soon.

Also I washed the car in slow motion using my iPhone. I can't believe how much it behaves like paint. See below:
