Thanks Greg, it took exactly 5 days to wrap the G. The only parts that needed to be removed was front & rear bumpers, side mirrors & rear spoilers. Some wraps involve 1 or 2 or even 3 layers of foil but it all depends on what material you're choosing. For me, i chosed matte black (from macTac) as its only single layer. Our foil technicians didnt have any problem wrapping around every corner as they've been doing this for the past 8 years. As a newbie in foiling, i was impressed on how they managed to wrap a piece of bumper with no 'ugly' joints or whatsoever.

I cant wait for my G to be wrapped in chrome (just the rear engine hood area) and i'll post some pics once its done. If you facebook, just subscribe to 'idesign concept brunei' - Many interesting projects that we've done includes a couple of Mercs SL AMG, 2 x Gallardos, 4x GTRs and many others. Check it out if you're free

Semi-related: here's a time lapse video of an auto shop doing a matte black wrap on a Scuderia - really interesting to see the process of it all coming together


Your car looks fantastic, Omar. Definitely worth the wait.

I never understood making a car look like it needs paint or clear coat lol ... I am not a big fan of matte but I like both of those lambos. Especially the gold one, that's different for sure.

Just watched that f430 video ... That was pretty dang cool. And it looked better wrapped then original.

Question who durable is this wrap and can you wash it like regular paint. And how much coin is a good quality wrap. I considered painting my murci verde ithaca but didn't want to worry about the paint process cause car needs to be taken apart . This looks 10x
easier. And keeps original paint on the car.

And, from what I understand, it functions effectively the same as a clear bra, so you're giving your car a fresh look and protecting it from the environment at the same time
