Hopefully the car will be done Friday afternoon. They have the hood wrapped and should be back together and remounted tomorrow. Then they will extend the matte black to the front around a new nose badge. The current side stripes (in the pictures) will be removed and replaced with TA style (without TA letters) side stripes. This is all being done with FLX-paint material. It has been fascinating to watch this process being done. Interesting to see the difference between regular decal material and FLX-paint. More images to follow in a few days.

Did you have them install that Meguiar's wrap? If not, what did they use to wrap it? Looks good so far man! :bigthumb:

The product is FLX-Paint. The backing has a 3M label. I guess it is a 3M product? It looks great so far. Looking forward to the end result.

Thanks!

I like it! Looks really nice. How durable will it be to road debris from small rocks, etc?

Thanks! Once it is completely cured to the car it is supposed to be as durable as regular paint?? The guys installing it have a matte bra material they say will be invisible on top of the wrap. We had a clear bra on our van for years and it was very strong. I may go that route even if its just the area right in front of the hood around the nose badge. FLX-Paint has a national website. I'll look on there to see if they have any additional durability information.

The hood was mounted today and the front fascia around the new nose badge was done. The mirrors were removed and the side stripes should be plotted, cut and completed tomorrow morning. Cleaned up and done around noon. The guys at Autonique are getting it done and it looks sweeeet! Getting a lot of positive comments already. A few more images from today.

looks good. I'll be interested to see it completed. This something I've been thinking about doing myself.
