I had a roll of old Mint Matte wrap laying around, so I figured why not throw it on the Mach. Threw some black on the roof, Still have to wrap the mirrors and antenna black, but figured I’d share with y’all.
I call her Mint Chip

That’s a great color! Feels “electric” ⚡
The color is almost three years old, so it should be a one of a kind ...just glad the adhesion was still good 🤘

Wow, that is wild looking! I’m not sure I would have picked it myself, but it is striking, and I appreciate anything unique.

How hard is it to apply? Are you a pro and you did this with leftovers, or are you an amateur who figured out the details?

It’s a lot of color... I like different and had the roll lying around.
I’ve taken wrap classes and wrapped some cars...I’m a professional Pinstriper and I also do vinyl graphics/racing stripes for my new car accounts.
Im not gonna lie, wrapping cars is hard. It’d go smoother if Iwoulda had a friend detrim the car, but it was a spur of the moment thing. Not perfect, but it’s my work car...so it’ll protect the paint and look unique.
I wouldn’t believe any of the threads about wrapping cars being “easy!!! Just get a heat gun!”...if you ever decide to try it out, hit me up and I’ll offer ya free advice and what to avoid.

Thanks, sounds like I shouldn’t just buy a roll and go for it. ;) I do have a workshop and enjoy learning new techniques, but it sounds like this one requires an investment in time and practice to get right.

Good luck with mint chip - it is my favorite ice cream flavor!

Reminds me of a Ford thunderbird color from way back
I know thatcolor well. That color is greener, duller, and gloss. This mint looked dull in the garage...then I pulled it out and it just pops.

That looks awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Heh, since I don't really like Grabber Blue, maybe when I get my GT I should hit you up for advice and wrap mine in a blue closer to what I'd like. LOL
