To the original poster, if you have access to a vehicle with the frozen finish (or even a painted swatch) I can send you a sample of Stealth so you can see what it would look like. This may help you decide which way to order the car.
Does Xpel Stealth have any metallic content? Also does it have a matte finish or a satin finish?
