Matte White Overlay
 
Played around a little this week with vinyl overlays. The process as most of you know is 100% reversible. I did a few pcs in a gloss white which was way to bright. The matte white is much more subdued. The car is white BTW.

I know its not for everyone but hey it not everyone's car either.

The contrast is nice. The matte looks better IMO, blends with the rest of the interior, looks good.

I got the idea from these pictures that I saw online of a Zetec S

Looks like the OEM white trim which works well. [thumb] Very nice.

I personally had a bit of an issue with the finish on my SE's trim being damaged when removing vinyl, but I was taking it off for paint anyway so it was moot. That factory silver was pulled off in one spot by the vinyl.

Thanks. I actually saw pictures of your door handle trim in yellow which inspired me to do the white. I did the center and the door handle trim.

Looks good! I have some matte orange vinyl laying around that I'm going to do the same thing with (will match my wheels). Just need to find time and energy to do it.
