Default Having my car wrapped...black grill or no?





Having my car wrapped. Was a hard choice whether to go with black grille or leave the stripes. What do you think?

All black. Except for the rings, like the first photo.

My opinion is if you leave the other silver accents you can leave the grill alone, if you black out the grill you need to black out all the other silver accents.


Just my .02

First off what are the benefits?
How long do you plan on keeping it on? If you leave it on for 2+ years, will it be harder to take off?
What about car washes? If it peels off during a car wash, do they warranty the work?
How much?

I like the first photo... the silver rings really stick out... like it a lot.

Maybe it's my monitor, but black and grey/brown don't seem to mix very well because they are so similar, yet don't match perfectly. It's like wearing dark brown pants with a black sports coat.

The car is actually satin black with gold dust. 3M. Doing it to protect from scratches etc. Also wanted a unique color. Think I will go with the black grille. Here is a tesla with the same wrap. My car also has a ceramic cover on top to make it last. They just took of a 9 uears old wrap withba beautiful paint job underneath.

Leave the grill stock unless you have black Optics.
