Default SWP Vinyl?

I did a bit of searching, but most people doing white wraps are doing flat white.

My car is SWP, and I intend on keeping it that way. I do autocross quite frequently, and as such I have a lot of contingency stickers. Sticking square ones to magnets are easy, but ones like my Hoosier sticker don't have a solid background.

Does anyone know of a vinyl that is a "good" match for SWP? I know I won't likely get the pearl effect, but if you put "white" against SWP you can really see the difference.

Thanks.

Hexis makes a pearl white. I tried it myself on my 08 swp. It's is close, and even has a nice pearl to it for a vinyl. But it is just a little brighter/ a little whiter. And it can make it appear that you paint is dirty in certain lighting.

Great information! I really appreciate it.

"Close" is good enough for me... my car looks dirty most of the time (cone hits, actual dirt, after-race beer funk).

I found a few pics of when I had it on my car. I wrapped the side of the cf wing to determine if i liked the look enough. (old pictures)

as you can see at some angles/lighting it looks the same, and other angles it looks whiter

I ordered mine from here http://autovinylsolutions.com/HEXIS_...=pearl%20white
