thanks,

wrap took about 5 days due to having to peel, clean, prep, and wrap every piece as apposed to just prep and wrap.

also took longer because i am a really anal about ti being as perfect as possible

Satin looks much better, I'd like to see it with some different wheels in a different finish to break up all the flat color.

Did you use LED's in your interior as well? If so which ones did you use?

Excellent work, takes "murdered out" to the next level.
I don't get the LED's next to the fogs though, they seem out of place with the rest of the look.

What is the difference between satin and matte?
Is satin slightly glossier than matte?
