A vehicle doesn't need a complete color change to make a striking transformation. Chrome delete. Blacked out. Murdered out. Dechromed. Whatever you prefer to call it, modifying the trim, accents, and emblems of a vehicle creates a whole new look. Recently, we blacked out a Mercedes-Benz GL550, and the results were striking. This vehicle will definitely get noticed on the road.
Our Limitless Auto Wraps team worked on this vehicle from front to back and top to bottom. Any area of the vehicle that was not black was wrapped or painted in black once the vehicle was complete. The photo below provides a glimpse of the areas we covered.
Consider this an unofficial 'before' shot.
To black out the GL550, we used a combination of vinyl and paint. For the vinyl, we mostly used 3M 1080 Gloss Black and added some 3M 1080 Matte Black to give contrast and definition to the front grille. The emblems and door handles were transformed using gloss black automotive paint. The paint offers more durability for the constant wear and tear that the door handles get.
And here is the 'after.' It looks even better in person!
Using 3M 1080 Gloss Black premium cast wrap film, we wrapped the following:
- front and rear lip spoilers
- roof racks
- fog light bezels
- rear hatch accent
- rear hatch slide/step
- window accents
- front grille (with 3M 1080 Matte Black)
- side steps (with a protective clear laminate)
These photos show the transformation of the front and back of the vehicle, including the emblems, front grille, lip spoilers, and hatch accents.
We added a clear protective laminate to the gloss black vinyl to give the side steps extra protection and durability.
