I did not want to change the color, I just wanted a tad less gloss and less glare from the reflections of the sun. I really like how this turned out. Everyone who has seen it so far thought it is a nice improvement. This work was done at a shop in Thousand Oaks , CA. Ghost Shield Films is the shop, Garrett is the owner. They do good work and have done all my Tesla's since 2012


Also, farther below, the image shows my range with 80% hwy. 60 to 65 MPH. Temps in 45 to 65 range. (Kim Java copied this off a thread and showed it on her youtube yesterday).

BTW: The fingerprints really were not a problem. You can choose to ignore them, or, if they bug you, Windex and a rag takes them right off. Even after sitting a few days, they came off. I have had none of the "rust" fallout but then where I live we have good air quality.

The wrap looks WAY BETTER than the pictures show you. The changes in panel color changes depending on the light as y9ou walk around the truck. So, in the pics I realize that that panels look inconsistent but in real life, it isn't noticeable.

I am simply so pleased to not have the sun glaring back at me, the "Stealth" satin finish is just perfect!

Again, if you are around Ventura County, Ghost Shield is a good place to have this done.

Some pics are in full light, some under the solar canopies.

I just realized what this wrap looks like. If you have a fairly new Apple laptop, the Apple "Space Grey " of my Macbook Air looks very close to the truck's finish.

Congrats! Looks awesome! All of my vehicles have matte PPF w/ceramic coatings. Do the Foundation etching show thru the PPF? I just order Best and want all etchings visible. Thanks in advance

Once wrapped, fingerprints become not truck but PPF burden and, based on other cars I've seen with Xpel Satin Stealth PPF, that film still shows fingerprints pretty prominently, but I never seen that film on stainless steel. Is fingerprint less or more visible on the PPF compared to CT bare metal?

Estimate of Cost?
I am not sure, I did get a long term customer discount plus they were happy to do their only second Cybertruck. The previous truck was in gloss. All the guys working at the shop thought my satin wrap looked MUCH better than the gloss.

I am not seeing any fingerprints at all.

1 Million Miles on ICE Toyotas, Waiting for CT
I’m guessing $5000-$7000 range
The wraps of that caliber I have seen have ranged fro $5,500-$9,000 so I think you are in the ballpark. Some CT owners have gotten deep or 100% discounts for the "first CT wrapped in X" but those are about out.
