i know this is a tad old but ive decided that im going to wrap my riv matte black. i dont have the time or money to have my car sanded down and re primered since my paint is cracking and is basically wrecked. ive read the whole debate above and i agree paint would be a much better option but with our cars having a certain steel wool effect they need to be stripped to bare metal which adds to the price alot. Ive been doing my research on wraps and looking at the shape of our cars it actually seems easier than most since rivs are so "smooth", i would do a panel a day after i get out of work since my other car is in storage.

Yeah....I don't see why not,just make sure you sand the bad/rust areas first you wrap the car and I think you shouldn't have problem with that.But how u gonna deal with the Riviera script ,u think the wrap will hold the glue or u wanna 3M it?

The Riviera and the supercharged emblems can be 3M taped.

I plasti dipped my riv last year, I posted pics of it on here at the time. It looked amazing for about 5 months then went to crap. If you even brushed up against it there would be a mark. Wasn't worth the 1000 bucks i spent.
