Yes I decided against the CF since it is a matt finish from 3M

looks good, did you DIY or had a shop do it?

How much film did you use? I order a roll of 12x60, looks too narrow. I might need to buy a 24x60 roll.

I had someone do it. I will see him tomorrow and ask. I saw him pull it off a large roll. He also wraps cars so he has large rolls. His FB site is wrap-fantastic

Looks great, but I would do the rails as well. I totally prefer this over the 3M CF Vinyl wrap.

CF > Gloss Black Vinyl > CF Vinyl

Wow looks great! I was first considering to dip the roof but now that I've seen how yours look with the Vinyl wrap I'm sold on this one. I also agree the rails have to be wrapped also. It looks incomplete.
