Love the blue wrap. Think you should go with gloss black roof. Matte black roof is kind of ghetto IMO. And yes, tails are looking ghetto.

Lol "And another one" ::Biggie Voice::

I def. aint going gloss. everything on the car is matte. If i did anything other than matte it would be a CF wrap. But i'll make that decision after i see how it looks matte. Easy fix anyway. I really think everyone will have a 2nd opinion after im done with everything.

People here in the tri-state are too drawn to the matte wrap to even give a crap about the tail lights. They don't really see that kinda sh*t often out here. I've gotten nothing but compliments in person thus far. #ImJustSayin.

Although i do respect everyone's opinion...I'm happy with it and thats all that counts at the end of the day

Here are a few more angles of the back. I seriously beg to differ on the negative tail light comments. But then again thats just me....

All I am commenting on is the wrap, it looks great from the pics. When is the roof and wheels going to be completed?

I can fully appreciate the good wrap work.

I think everyone else beat the rear taillights enough so I'll leave that alone.

The wrap is not 110% perfect... but for a DIY i can't complain. It was excruciating work... but It cost me possibly less than 1/3 the normal price so im cool with it! Thank you for appreciating the work/color

Again, doesn't look bad, but you still some more aggressive mods to pull the taillights off. Look into a rear diffuser/front lip/spoiler combo.

With the right mods you can pull those tails off. Wheels, drop, varis diffuser etc..

It's too much matte IMO. I think the roof would be better gloss black. I also don't like painted stockers. But if you're going to, I think they should be gloss also.
