    Got her back from the body shop last night. Took a couple of pictures this morning. Will give her a bath later today, hehe, but wanted to get some early shots, clean up garage, and did Uconnect update...But got called to work, so will have to finish later. These are amateur photos with my phone, but there is a professional photographer who stopped by the body shop and contacted me about wanting to take photos of it because he thought it was bad a$$ looking. :)

    Yeah, xpel stealth. Gives the whole car a matte finish. Pictures really don't do it justice, you can still see that pearl with the metal flakes, but no picture seems to capture it right.

    Vanishing point was why I decided to go white after B5 blue wasn't available, haha. Though the black hood makes it not match, I don't care. I like the hood :)

    Did you order your 'Cat with the optional black hood or did you have your hood painted/wrapped?

    I think this would look great on Black, White, and Gray. Definitely not for a color that is meant to stand out like Torred or Sublime

    Ordered it with hood, but Dodge denied me, so had it wrapped.
    That's a cool video! Yeah, I like the look. My boss brought me to pick up my car in his Shelby GT 500, and when he saw my car, he asked if he could leave his car and get it done too, haha. So we ended up driving back in my Hellcat :)
    Thanks! Like I said, I wish the pictures would really show just how awesome it looks. I was worried that the Tri-coat pearl wouldn't stand out well with the matte look, but you can totally see it, and it's amazing.
    I looked at a yellow Z06 with it, and was surprised at how well it came out. My first two thoughts were (1) looks better, but still don't like yellow and (2) I wonder how Sublime would turn out with it. I think you may be right, but would still think it could come out good.

    Fascinating video! The total matte look is not my preference, but the process is mesmerizing.

    Looks outstanding! I wonder if you could just buy the extra black hood like many people have leaned towards, but then just have them apply the matte Xpel coating just to the hood without painting the hood.
    Anyone have any experience if that could be performed without other issues?
