    It does look amazing,its hard to tell the difference from the window rubbers and the wrap, blends in perfectly!

    I nearly went for satin black, but it just wouldn't have blended in like the matte

    We agreed a price of no more than £100, I think tho' anyone else will have to pay more as he didn't bank on it being so fiddly, so I'm guessing he will charge more.


    TBH tho' I have seen a lot of cars done, he has done an awesome job of it, car will be washed this morning then I will post more pics
