Vinyl wrap is very common for commercial vehicles. Police cars, delivery trucks, news vans... etc, etc. For private vehicles, it's mostly about putting wild graphics on a car.

Shiny is sort of subjective. It's much better than the 16 year old paint... I really cannot say how shiny or deep it is just yet. It needs some more time for the vinyl to set properly before it looks as smooth as it should. Also, I cannot wash off the hand prints or apply any polish until it sets. So far it looks like a lacquer more than enamel. The great thing about this is, aside from cost and that I could do it myself, is that I can re-wrap panels as needed and vinyl requires almost no maintenance. I should warn, the application is not for the faint of heart.

No one who has seen it has thought it was anything other than paint.

And you didn't choose the wild-graphics?
Nice.

To make it shine, I got bought 3M Performance Finish. It's just a swirl remover. No need to wax!!!
