looks great! would love to see a photo after a week or two of driving without a wash. debating wether to do a full xpel treatment on my el cap, afraid of how much upkeep i’ll need to do to keep it looking decent.

I did glossy on my own. This is a friend’s that was covered in mud prior to a touchless wash.


dogllama

any thoughts on which is easier to keep looking nice?


branden3112

Depends on the color I think and how much showed


deweysmith

You people have to stop posting these or I’m gonna do it to mine when it shows up and complain about the cost to my wife so much that she’ll divorce me

Hot! Gonna matte my forest green R1S when I get it.


Flat_Machine_4337

Beautiful!


rcott77

It just looks right!


someOfUsDontGet2Rest

I will probably never do it but definitely love matte finishes! This looks amazing. Qq: Does matte finish mean it can only be clear/transparent? It you do hypothetically any random color in matte for Xpel?


branden3112

You could do matte wrap if want a different color but otherwise matte PPF is clear


someOfUsDontGet2Rest

I see that’s an important distinction. Thank you!


Secret-Pass-434

But not always clear. Tinted PPF is a relatively new product but I’ve seen Triet post about it. Normally it comes in black from what I’ve seen and both glossy and matte finishes. It can be good for wrapping over rock chips or anything where the paint is less than perfect.


branden3112

Good point.

This is exactly what I wanted to do with my order when it gets delivered. Thank you, OP.

I love matte wraps. They just look so amazing.


rlnerd

That looks amazing!! Thanks for posting. Still thinking about matte vs regular just because of the dirt.

Looks rad! Curious to see that with the other colors as well


Uncle_Paul_Hargis

Damn, that looks SO good. The whole idea of these is to simply protect the paint right? So if you go offroad, I assume the wrap is way more resilient to getting pinstripes from pushes and sticks, right? I have FG on my configuration (for now at least until I continue changing back and forth between this and Rivian Blue like every week).


branden3112

PPF is self-healing in heat, so no pinstripes. Check my profile if you want Rivian Blue pics (my truck)


Uncle_Paul_Hargis

Dude… the blue is incredible! I may still go that route


bitzab

Looks so great. I'm torn though because FG is such a deep color in person, it's totally gorgeous. Both looks are amazing but very different too. This matte look is brawnier.


Redbull89123

I’ve always wanted to do a matte wrap but my mind keeps telling me the dirt would just stick to it since it seems like it would be a slightly rough surface.


twiggyknowswhatsup

Maybe a dumb question - this is a ‘clear’ matte wrap that goes over your existing car color ya? Ie this R1T isn’t white underneath the wrap. If I’m getting limestone I don’t think this matte looks good.. but I was going to get silver… a matte bright silver looks awesome. What to do what to do!


branden3112

You are correct


Special_Wally

If you don’t mind the question, how much did this cost? Got a Blk R1S on the way and was thinking of doing the exact same thing


branden3112

This was a $6500 job with tucked edges unlike the $4500 Rivian deal


diamondHandsies

Oh that's niiice! 👍

Looks awesome
