And when they get hurt they wonder why. Good luck with the wrap.

same thing happened to me last year, keyed around my entire rear bumper and license plate. I've wanted to do matte white myself, so white gets my vote!

Man, hate seeing that.. Just awful.

If you're wrapping, go with white since there are a few in flat black already

White by a small nudge (blends in the dirt and light scratches easier)

Satin/Matte Orange with black on hood and roof would look sweet.

I'm thinking the opposite, cause vinyl is cheaper and faster to fix.

Much appreciate everybody's kind words. I'm cooled down about it, but won't drive it, until
it go's to Xtreme and get done. Insurance called yesterday and came by shop this morning.
Guy looked it over and took pics for about 20 mins then wrote me a $1750. check. So now if
I ever do find the guy I have to thank him before I kill em. They took the $500. deductible out.
As I turned on TV last night Pulp Fiction was playing and the scene was Travolta talking
about how some prick keyed his car after he just got it out of storage and talks about how
wrong it is to fk with someone's car.
I'm just gonna try to park way out, where this jag has to take a walk over to the jeep outta
his way and maybe he'll get nabbed. Can't let these fockers beat us.

If it was just a weekend warrior, I'd try that wild and mean combo.
I'm gonna do it Stormtrooper style, no doubt we have a few fast Black jeeps in chitown.

Damn, no cameras that sucks. Sorry to see that Scott. I would definitely go white if I were you, plenty of people have done matte black.
