Default Full Xpel Stealth Raptor
My buddy John here in Houston that owns Gulf Coast Auto Shield https://www.facebook.com/GulfCoastAutoShield/ just finished up wrapping my Raptor in Xpel Stealth. We have a few finishing touches to apply, but it's pretty much done and now I get to figure out what the next mods are...

The Xpel comes with a topcoat that appears to be hydrophobic and the water beads and runs right off. If for some reason this isn't enough, I'll have John apply Opticoat.

Looks great! Considered that, just can't stomach the cost. Cheaper to wrap with a satin vinyl than the xpel stealth. Hope you got a better price since your buddy did yours.

Thanks! It is more expensive than vinyl and it doesn't wrap corners and such as well as vinyl does, but on the flip side it is much thicker and more resilient to damage.

Thanks. And it's a Lomax cover. I provided a quick review in a separate thread but may make my own post to cover it. Pun intended.

How much (ballpark) would this cost to do to a Raptor?
