I almost went with Area51 but have a Carb Gray BL just like OP @Zeke013, due to arrive in about 10 days. There's a shop 5 miles from me that does XPEL work, I may have to talk to them and consider forking over more money. Can't get over how good these came out, the Area 51 is such a difference, and like OP said the photos may not do justice to the gray.
The PPF I used was Hexis BodyFence Satin

Here is mine... I love how it turned out! They did "double" ceramic coating on mine. Not sure what the first ceramic coating is but the second layer is EXO v4 Hydrophobic Top Coat. He poured some water on it and it was amazing how it beaded off.

I actually ordered Oxford White because of how white paint looks wrapped in Xpel Stealth. I'm sure that someone else will do it long before my Wildtrak comes in 2045.
My White WT is getting wrapped as we speak in XPEL Stealth. It’s not finished yet, but here is a side shot with the fender and doors done. The hood and rear quarters still need to be done, but you can see the contrast in the pics. Excited to see the finished product.

Love how it looks! My Wildtrak was pulled for production this week so it's great seeing the same trim/color wrapped.

The Rest was finished today and it looks incredible. Next step is the ceramic coat on top. The pictures do not do it justice. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to pull the door handles and have them painted gloss black to match the mirrors and the retro Bronco badges. The Xpel stealth on the handles is likely to collect dirt at the seam. How do you think black handles would look?

I think it would look good with black handles, but it also looks good now. Could always paint them later if they do start collecting dirt.

Hoping you post some outside pictures when its all done!

I did not. Will see how it looks with the doors off this summer.

Hi, I purchase a Outer Banks in Hot Pepper Red. I live in Atlanta and definitely will be contacting Atlanta Ceramic Coating. Thanks for sharing your video.
They’re great and I’m still extremely happy with my choice!! Nice color!!

I opted for a full wrap in Xpel Stealth satin / matte PPF (don't ask about what it cost - it was stupid (but I love it)).

Also did Photosync tint, and CP Gold ceramic treatment on the PPF/windows.

My wallet is a lot lighter. But I have a 1 of 1 Bronco at least for a few months.

Overall, I am a fan. Very little coloring difference, but there's less glare, and I think that helps the lines stand out. IMHO.

Plus, my bronco will be parked outdoors 24/7 so I ought to get my money's worth from the Xpel and ceramic.

Some bonus pics - and yes, you can still see the sparkle. Pics don't do it justice.

Warrantied for 10 years. And no damage. I will have to pay someone to remove it (because I am lazy and have no skill), but no damage. In fact, the paint will look as good as the day it was wrapped.
