Am I ghetto

Wrapped my hood matte grey to test out the vinyl, and was going to remove it but I don't want to take it off now. Am I acting ghetto?

Extremely unnecessary posts in this thread have been removed. Stay on topic.


And yes OP, remove the vinyl unless you plan to do the entire car.

What are you testing it for? Whether or not to do the entire car? If doing the entire car, go for it. The whole car should be the same color, IMO.

As someone who has wrapped an entire car, good luck. The bumpers will be the hardest part. Plan on it taking quite a while to do, it is not a quick process for a first timer. Also it is not really a DIY type job, to do it right it is at least a DIY+1

I was testing out the material to see how well it holds up, quality, ability to work with, etc

And yes I know luckily it's not my first wrap job, I have a shop and part of what we do is vehicle wraps, it's just that I'm testing out a new supplier .

You did a good job wrapping it...but to most people, this looks like a hood off of another car (leading them to assume that you crashed your car).

It clashes too much.

Get rid of those fake xenons. Jesus that glare is bad. If you're going to do HIDs, do it right with projectors or don't do it at all.

Sorry. HUGE pet peeve of mine.

It looks cool for a high school kid's car. I like it.
Don't listen to what these 40 years old guys tell you, they certainly didn't have enough fun in life by conforming and they don't want you to have any either.
