A matte paint finish is one method to make your automobile stand out, but it comes with a number of negatives, such as the fact that it requires a lot more effort to maintain and keep clean than a typical gloss finish.

Unlike a gloss finish, which usually has numerous layers of transparent protective coatings, matte paint finishes usually just have one thin coat to achieve the matte impression.
As a result, the surface is extremely brittle.
Bird droppings that aren't cleaned soon, for example, cause stains.

Furthermore, excessive rubbing, such as while washing, might cause the matte finish to lose its matte appearance and become glossy.
Small scratches and swirls, on the other hand, cannot be rubbed out and must be removed with fresh paint, though we should note that manufacturers have been producing more durable matte finishes in recent years.

Another option for achieving the matte effect without the bother is to use a vinyl wrap that can be cleaned like a regular gloss finish.
While traditional matte vinyl wraps seldom resemble a factory matte finish, a modern transparent wrap can impart a matte appearance to a gloss paint finish applied at the factory while also protecting the original paint.

Topaz Detailing in the United Kingdom has released a video showing the transparent wrap being applied to a Brabus-modified Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 4-Door Coupe that had a black gloss finish when it left the factory.
Topaz refers to the wrap as a Stealth Paint Protection Film, and it also protects the wheels and any carbon-fiber elements on the outside.
Every piece is pre-cut using digital tools, which means no cutting equipment is ever brought near the automobile, guaranteeing the original paintwork isn't marred.
And, of course, the whole thing may be undone.

Take a look at the video and be captivated by the metamorphosis.
