    I've seen pictures of stealth wrap on silver, white and blue - looks awesome. I haven't seen any pictures of stealth wrap on the multi-coat red...

    Anybody out there do this? Any pictures? How does it look?

    Thanks-

    I did a full front wrap for my Model 3. Came out perfect. Don't have a close up of the front, but unless I tell someone I did it, they have no idea.

    Stealth wrap is different than regular wrap. Stealth knocks down the shiny finish and transforms it to matte.

    Ah, yes, my mistake. Missed that detail. Never mind . . .

    My MX is red, and I opted for the clear Xpel wrap (wrapping the X is a must IMHO). I was afraid that a stealth red may end up looking like a tomato ;)

    But, like you, I wasn't able to find any pics of stealth in red... which led me to think it may not look as amazing as some of the other colors.

    I will say that the red, fully wrapped, and coated (did mine in Modesta) makes for an amazing look!

    I have seen pictures of Model S or X stealth wrap on red, black, white, midnight silver, and blue on this forum. Don't remember seeing a stealth wrap silver. If you want I could try to find the stealth red. I think it was a MS in stealth red I saw.

    Thanks for the link - oh man, that looks pretty sweet. My X is slated for delivery between mid to late August. I have some time to make this tough decision - but in the end, it is a win-win, so it is all good. And yes, after full wrap I do plan on ceramic coat.

    *Instant regret.

    I was wrong. The stealth red looks amazing.

    Guess I just gotta get another red X/S so I can have it 'stealthed'! :)

    I wonder... since my coating made my Xpel so much 'glossier'... would a coating over a stealth wrap negate its satin appeal?

    Maybe there's a coating that's satin?

    Brian,

    You can put ceramic coating on XPEL STEALTH, just not as many layers or you'll start to get a glossy look.

    That's what she said :) The Wife likes the gloss and I like the stealth. Since this is mainly her car, I think I might be toast ...
