Stock is boring; and Austin Smith, founder of #201WRAP, and Paintisdead.com knows better than anybody else with two Super Street shoots under his belt from his Honda/Acura builds, and spending most of his adult life in the aftermarket automotive industry. With the new Volkswagen GTI build, he wanted to show just how different a car can pull into the shop and leave the shop. Starting with tint and coilovers, the car was off to a good start. Afterwards, a new set of Niche Wheels (with ADV1’s coming up shortly) powdercoated in a gorgeous Red Candy were put on and calipers wrapped up in Gloss Red Reflective, and the car was ready for wrap. Austin chose Hexis Oyster Gray Gloss/Redcurrent Red Gloss accents for his wrap. He was really going for a “Suzuka Gray” look, and OEM color from Audi, and HEXIS Oyster Gray Gloss not only matched it nearly dead on, but comes with an absolutely perfect gloss finish.
