I have never heard it put that way haha, interesting take on it. Sure does look good

Your car looks good but why not wrap the chrome on the door handles? I had mine wrapped today with 3M mat black. Only thing better would be to have them painted body color.

I had the door handles wrapped but it looked like ass so we pulled it off. Planning on having them painted body color soon.

I like it. My roof is wrapped too but it was a bad job so am having it redone. Did not wrap the strips on side but I may this time around.

And yeah...get the door handles painted body color if you do anything. I really like how mine came out. Gives the car a very solid and less flahsy look on the sides along with the IND gloss black stuff.

Most guys with black cars are wrapping everything except the roof and rails white or silver to get the same effect.

Couldn't get it fixed to my liking. Can easily tell the difference in the wrap vs. paint because of texture. Looked at two best types of wrap for comparison (3M and Oracal). Ended up ripping it off and left it at the shop being painted (rails too). I love the black so there is really no risk in painting it. Super high end shop that has always done my customizing. Saw a Benz in the parking lot Friday when I was there with the painted black roof and it looked so much nicer.

I'm going to give it 1 more try this week, but I'm leaning towards paint also. Had a 11' Maroon S550 w/roof painted black from the factory and it looked great.
