I like the houses in the background.

Sorry Johnny, I like to be honest and I like paintwork rather than wraps, usually regardless of colour.

That said, I'm assuming it's wrapped and if it is, the finish is pretty damn amazing from this distance.

Not normally my thing but that looks good, not ott, quite tasteful, I like the debadged rear end and the black piece on the boot looks good frm that angle. Good job, looks mean.

A friend of mine.. Stunning job. Im a picky bugger and I can't find a single fault with it.. Yes its still not paint, but its the best representation of a wrapped car that I have personally ever seen.

Nice boot

I really like the colour but the verdict's still out on the duck bill rear. From the back it looks great, the front 3/4 it looks like somethings missing. I guess your rear spoiler will be going on eventually???

Looks very good! Its a shame I like the red so much, as I want to protect it, but I also dont want to choose another colour.

thanks.... really like the bootlid!

Yeah, the spoiler is missing Personally, I prefer the ducktail bootlid - custom spoiler is 1/3 completed (mounting bracket is complete and hidden , just looking for someone to build the spoiler and struts).

It is a bit like the Lambo Super Leggera grey, and I personally don't like it.

I preferred your car in black as it looked really mean! Still, its a change and beauty of a wrap is you can change it any time.

I am guessing you wanted to really differentiate the carbon to the body?

The colour was always going to split opinion, and that's exactly what I wanted to be honest. Personally I love it, but it needs to stand out as 'The JCR car' and black just doesn't do that..

It does really set off the carbon nicely and with more exterior bits done I'm sure it will bring it together nicely

I think its one of those colours which looks better in the flesh. Does look like a nice job he's done. I bet it gets some looks
