Soap and water is all you need. The matte finish eliminates the need for using waxes cuz the grease from the product creates shine and shows up on the matte. Soap, water, and sham.I retain my 1 of 1 status for a couple reasons. 1) that evoque is matte dark grey, where as I opted for the matte grey aluminum. I think mine is a closer match to the limited edition color. 2) that evoque's missing all of its lettering! Details make all the difference 3) I believe his grill has the LR button. 4) my wheels are 20s

I was actually looking into using plastidip but ran into a couple issues. Namely they don't ship/sell plastidip in gallons to the state of CA. Kinda retarded cuz you can easily buy cans of it from any local hardware store. washing plastidip is difficult and it doesn't last as long as vinyl from 3m. 3m has a life of 10 yrs on the vinyl. Did the wrap myself. Done several vehicles. Thought about charging to provide the service. Going rate on wrapping a car is around $1500 and up depending on the size of the car. Depending on demand I might consider doing it for local so cal residents.

looks Great. I want to do my plastic around the Wheels to match the color of my Rover but it will be difficult without having the entire truck done in the same color. Great job.

The lettering is from powerfulUK and the grill is from duckworths, also in the UK. Wrapped means the car has been wrapped in vinyl ( basically a giant sticker).

That is very impressive! You did an excellent job! DYI you say. How long did this take to complete? How much material did the job require? How does the 3M material hold up to extreme temps. for those of us you live in snow country?
