    May be, but at this time I figure it's at a price peak with everyone wanting a matte finish.

    Don't forget- that $2k price was to wrap a Ferrari.

    Cost always fluctuates based on the price of the vehicle the mod is for, which is why Borla charges $500 for a Mustang exhaust, $1,100 for a CTS-V, and $5,600 for a Lamborghini.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    got a price for my V to be wrapped about 6 months ago. told me starting a $2k and up. now, go open the doors, trunk, hood, what do you have? GLOSS! lol can't wrap in there and then it looks like shit. scuff it, spray it, drive it. if you ever want gloss again, scuff it spray it with gloss clear and cut and buff it and be done with it. price on matte clear is about $500 for the products. now find a painter, i have my step-bro so painting is free, and you are in! i can paint my car 4x's and still be ahead of the game with my jambs done too!

    You price a professional matte paint job? I heard they can be 25-50% higher than a normal job.

    Does the vinyl F up your paint? Could you take it back off if you didn't like it?

    I'd like to do this to my Jeep (for trails) and hopefully it would take the scratches....or would it just peel off?

    Good buddy of mine had this exact setup on his old V... 05 black on tan with dark tint, blacked lights, and flat black stripes... hit up SilveradoSS500 on the ls1tech.com boards and he's got a ton of pics

    $2-3k for a vinyl wrap? Why pay that much for vinyl. My local custom shop said they'd do the whole paint job for around $4k. Take off all the pannels, get everything. This place definately does not do cheap looking paint jobs.
