So still thinking about doing vinyl on my hood and roof. Especially since the paint on the hood is not in the best of shape....scratches, chips and such. So looking for some input since some of the 3M vinyl has come down in price lately. Only $110 to do hood and roof. I'm considering either matte black or satin black. My car is Twilight Blue metallic. Originally was thinking about matte but then 3M released the satin. Just don't want the actual gloss black as I have no gloss black parts on my car. My wheels are a flat/satin black depending on how dirty they are lol.

So, matte or satin black vinyl?????

I would say flat, but that's just me.

I would vote matte as I have seen that on a car before and loved it. Also, I agree with the plasti-dip. It's $5 a bottle and if you mess it up, you can just peel off an start over. I had a LOT of fun playing with it this weekend and it was REALLY easy. It's also sold at HomeDepo so no ordering was required.
