Had this done to protect the paint and I am very happy with it. Even on black, you simply can't tell it is there. Every bit as glossy as factory finish and actually smooths out the orange peel so it looks better than from the factory. In addition to what you see below in the pics, I had the entire hood wrapped but pulled it off last night. It was the only part I was unhappy with and it still looked good, just not perfect. Texas Venom (AKA Thom, http://pro-tectmobile.com/) did the install. Highly recommend him if you are in DFW area. He was not happy with the rockers that were from a kit so he came back yesterday to redo them hand cutting. He is also going to redo the hood after testing some new material. The hood was crazy hard to wrap due to the deep wells.

Nice, I heard he does an awesome job and you can tell.

This is something everyone needs to do when purchasing a NEW car to keep it looking good. I may take mine off soon and have it re-done, as it has been almost 3 years

Doing the front bumper is no easy job. I tried it on our 2010 and pulled it back off. Black is much harder to do than other colors.

He really did a good job and honestly, you have to REALLY look hard to see it. The grill and bumper were from a kit, as well as the rockers but he re-did the rockers with a custom cut piece so most of it was custom cut. Best of all he does not touch a blade to the vehicle. And he drives an 07 Jeep SRT8 so he understands the illness that has inflicted us all.

Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure working on the WK2 as it was the first one I have seen in person. I REALLY WANT ONE NOW as the WK1 just doesnt compare. At least looks/qulaity wise it doesnt. But I couldnt beat him in a race because then I might not have gotten paid. :fight:

you couldn't beat me in a race because you drove your wife's mamory wagon (Honda Pilot) on the day we were supposed to put them heads up. Lol. My friendly car wash bet still stands when you are ready to nut up. Btw, the Pilot seems to really suit you.

LMAO! The day we were supposed to race??? I must not have gotten the memo. But I WILL bring it next time to see if you can handle the 150,000 mile WK1. From what I saw of your driving... I dont think it will be a problem for me. :eek:

By the way I brought the Pilot because I had my 4 month old that day. Childseats do not belong in a true Beast. Guess thats why your back seat is full of them.
