My Matte/Flat black vinyl Evo X!!!

i know some of you have already seen this on socal or evom... but since im part of all three, why not post it on all three right?



so this guy in socal with a bmw 335 decided to vinyl his car... i liked the way it looked and decided to try it out myself...

i don't think I'm the first matte black evo x, but i think I'm the first matte black vinyl evo x

i did mine for about the 3rd of the price of the bmw (if youve seen the thread on socalevo)... i bought the vinyl, i did some parts myself, and the rest i just had a local vehicle wrap place do.
i must say, it was way harder than i thought it would be (seeing other people on the net doing it made it look fairly easy)
but i learned some things along the way and am pretty confident i can do most of a car now, aside from some of the harder curves and stuff.
all in all it was a good experience.

I'm sure bmw is more flawless than mine, there are bits and pieces that aren't perfect (dirt under the vinyl, small creases, chips, etc...) and i think we used different vinyls... but again, i learned a lot, paid less, and I'm glad i gave it a shot.

ALL DONE (for now) PICS!!!



how it progressed:




now all i need is some gun metallic volk te37's to finish it off.

hope you like it, I'm sure there are gonna be haters, but that comes with the territory.

ill take more pics later, it was getting dark and my camera isnt great...
also ive decided to go wingless now and just have the little carbon fiber lip, but i have the original trunk and wing vinyl'd also, so i can switch between the two as i so desire.

if you have any questions please feel free to ask me.

added new pics:

Actually, I thought I was gonna hate it, but i kinda like it. If nothing else at least you'll get awesome paint protection for a while...

ddawg1130 - thanks. that and resale will be a whole lot easier. i can peal it off and go back to grey when im over it. although if anything, ill probably just change vinyl color (matte grey seems interesting also)

Wow, that looks crazy. Almost like a cartoon or something.

Is it clear vinyl over black or actual black vinyl?

Hey, at least you won't have to worry about rock chips.

kooldino - its matte black vinyl... original paint is graphite grey. it would be cool though if there was a clear vinyl that you could lay over any color you have and it appeared matte. i like that idea a lot.
