    $400!
    Came out great!

    Need some touching up on the side mirror trim. We never tried folding the mirrors after the Wrap. Till the installer left. And it tugged on the vinyl. So they will be back this Sunday for a re-do.

    Is that a spray on? Plasti Dip. Oh no, it rubs right off when they dry your car off.

    Looks good! I was back and forth on the satin vs gloss as well.

    Its time to finish the picture. We installed this matted finish clear bra made by XPEL and changed the look completely. This is a transparent film that allows the factory color to go from shiny to satin finish to give it a "Darth Vader" mystic.

    Sorry, but Vader was more of a gloss black, your matte is more to the liking of Boba.

    PS: There's actually an article here about Vader's gloss vs matte development (Kropserkel: Darth Vader McQuarrie Conceptual Helmet)
    I'll stop geeking out now...

    Thanks for the correction. It brings up another mistake in my reference to Darth Vaders appearance. Unlike the Tesla, he maintains the Chrome trim pieces around the Life Support control box over his stomach area. This would be two strikes against my Darth Vader comparison. I guess Darthy likes a little flash, because he could have had that blackened out with a matted finish.

    It would be interesting to see a modern-day designed Darth Vader with no buttons and a touch-sensitive screen.
