Dude I think it will be sharp. The matte looking blue is a great color choice.

Day 2 complete
Thanks man, I was really close to choosing a matte pearl white, and a matte Metallic silver flake over laminate. I was almost sold on the color and called my buddy to get the order in, luckily he waited in case I changed my mind. Which I did, obviously, once I had the idea to see what the color looked like laid down on vehicles and that’s how I decided on it.
As much as I loved the pearl idea, it wouldn’t have given me the aggressive look I wanted. And I just love the look of blue vehicles with yellow fogs. So either I decide on doing the trd Pro conversion and wrap those lights yellow. Or save me the money (200 ish gap) and get some Baja designs. Either way that’s where I’m headed.
That looks reeeaaally freakin good. The only question I have is, how well does the wrap stand up to rock chips and door dings? You cant just slap some touch-up paint on it.
would be best to add a clear bra or in my case matte bra
It’s fairly thick for the most part, over all it should hold up well, I’ve heard of guys still wheeling their trucks, with wraps on, and worst case scenario you could just re wrap that area.
I know a guy that had a Ferrari 458 and a truck launched a rock at his car resulting in the chip going so deep it scratched the paint. He had the wrap warranted which the installer removed the damaged wrap and re did it and you couldn’t even see the scratch.
Almost done just a few more areas to do
Looking good Cuban.
Lookin good.. Are you leaving the top black?
I really like it with the top black! But all blue would be good too.
Yeah I think the black top looks awesome
Truck looks good! I like the bead locks the same color too.
It’s gonna be wrapped, I haven’t had time to get back to the shop to finish it up. I thought about leaving it black but it looks great in pictures, in person looks like crap do to the scuffs from the rack I had on.
That and the front bumper “center piece” is going to be wrapped in satin black to match the grill till I rack up the money to buy a low pro winch bumper (bottom of to do list). So the black roof wouldn’t have matched anything.
Well as far as blue goes she’s done, now I have to wait for the satin black to come in and then she will be complete!
Let me just say pictures dont give this color justice!
Oh p.s you can’t tell in the pictures but I wrapped my fog lights in “bright yellow” film by 3M
That Hugh Hefner lookalike in the white suv looks like hes waaay too excited by the truck.
I thought he was more excited about the Cuban beside the truck.
