Why on Earth would you want to wrap your whole car a Satin finish is beyond me, but I guess there are some out there who like the dull, faded look. I must say you are probably in the minority, because most would think it looks hideous.
+1. I think it looks horrible. Ruins a perfectly nice looking car IMO.

Not my cup of tea and I would be worried about installer cutting into the paint. Also if paint get ruined underneath its going to hurt the resale value.

LOL.
Use scoth brite throughout the whole body and you just saved $4000.
You want the gloss back a year later? Break out the Makita with good compound and it's shinny again.

So, the idea is to protect your paint job right?
Problem is, a paint job is about............................................. ...........................$4000, lol.
That's right!!
So you spend $4000 to save $4000?
Mmmmkay...

My car is gotten so many straches in it thinking about some flames or something maybe to cover most of them, But If I had $1000 ild just re paint the whole thing.

With how many scratches I'm starting to get from it being a DD I may need to paint or wrap my car. My only issue with wrapping is if you get a chip in the vinyl. Then the original paint shows. The last time I looked into getting the whole car painted it was a lot more than $4k though.

Wow, you guys need to find someone who can paint, I have a buddy who would paint mine I am sure for around $1,000 I would help him prep it tho but normally he gets $1500-2,000 for a paint job.

When I asked/priced it out, it was for a complete color change OEM quality. So yeah, it was going to be expensive. I'm not sure what it will cost to just fix my problem areas.

Matte colors are fine for small pieces here and there (spoiler, lower side skirts, etc) but an entire car/bike looks horrible.

I dislike gray cars A LOT but matte is even worse.
Agreed, not worth it IMO

Yeah, color changing does cost more there is more work involved, you cant just shoot the car on outside you got to do door jams and under hood, i really want to change color of mine but thinking maybe just keeping a purple stripe or flames or something so i dont have to worry with changing everything.
My buddy restores old cars and builds killer hotrods i have helped him prep many many cars and trucks over he yr, seems like everyone is always a totally different color change. lots of hours into them before the pain goes on. I was going to post a pic of one the cars he painted but i forgot can't just upload to this site.
