I am getting this done for my CTS-V but this would also work well for the trucks

This is what it looks like stock


Lots of options available but the carbon fiber looks awesome.
The film is clear, you could color match the truck as part of the carbon fiber colors if you wanted as an option.
I'll have to take the wife's down and get it done along with the new hot pipes when they're done so everyone can see.
The clear coat used is good for high temps without any problems.
I'll get some pricing later, just gauging interest.

Looks great.
Too bad they hide that monster under all those covers.

I had all those pieces hydrodipped carbon fiber and the supercharger lid has been replaced with a ZL1 lid (worth 15 to 30HP supposedly).
I'll post up pics when it's done, looks super awesome :)
Progress on project blackout!

How expensive is that? I just watched a video on FB of this being done.
It looks so simple and inexpensive, yet requires special tools to do.
Looks like you spray paint on water or some type of solution then slowly dip the parts in. They were dipping rims.

It's based off of the square inches of the item being shipped. The process also requires prep work, base coat and clear coat so not as cheap as you might think. Looking at around $.70 a square inch.
