    Are you gonna do the wing mirrors to? If so matte black looks good against silver. But Gloss does as well :happy:
    Get some one to photoshop it for you

    Matt and gloss both look good matey, but when I asked a vinyl wrapper if he could do some bits matt black for me, he strongly advised against it as the matt vinyls used in wrapping are very easily scratched and marked. Gloss black (such as Hexis vinyl) is much more durable, especially for going on the front end, which takes quite a lot of abuse from stones, etc. :) x
