    Matching Vinyl for Carbon Flash Metallic

    Hello Everyone,

    I took a small 2"x3" sample of VVIVID, 3M and AVERY Vinyl and applied them to my spoiler. Photos were taken with the car inside the garage and outside. I believe the 3M product is the closest to Carbon Flash. Although you may not be able to see it in the photos, the Avery product is not as black as the 3M, although I believe the Avery product looks a little more metallic than 3M. VVIVID doesn't even come close! Opinions are most welcome!

    3M is my vote. I have seen it in person as a Stinger stripe and against the hood vent you can’t tell a difference.

    Matt, I believe you're 100% correct, even though it's hard to compare by looking at pictures.

    I used the 3M on mine and I think it looks great. I had also tried a gloss carbon from VVivid and it didn't last very long.

    That's exactly what I have spec'd out for my next mod. Just waiting for a price from the detailer. The 3M metallic is much darker and closer to the carbon flash.

    I don't have any experience with vinyl wraps. So, is it possible to wrap the stage 1 front splitter with the 3M Gloss Black Metallic? Or, am I just wishful thinking?

    No reason it couldn’t be done. They wrap whole cars. I think it would get beat up pretty bad though from road debris. If I remember in Glen’s build thread, he painted his CF and then put Expel door guard on the leading edge. That may be a better option than wrap for a splitter.

    I used the 3M 1080 to black out my Stingray grill before replacing it with a Z06 grill. The 3M was a perfect match.
