    Through another forum I actually found out where the name Rosso Vik came from. Lambo had a very sucessful salesman named Vik Keuylian and the color was named for him bringing sucess to Lamborghini sales in the US

    What happened...

    " For those not in the know, Vik Keuylian cheated the system by offering a Lamborghini fire sale at two of his California-based dealerships, netting him $8.1 million which he has yet to repay to VW Credit Inc., who originally financed the cars at a cost of $12 million.

    We originally asked how someone could sell 54 Lamborghinis (or 8% or Lamborghini's 2008 total U.S. sales) in eight days and it seems as if that question has been answered. He sold many to wealthy Hollywood elite like, Sharon Stone, Kobe Bryant, but also sold a package of 23 to Newport Beach entrepreneur, Levon Gugasian, owner of Newport Collectibles exotic auto dealership. Included in the plea agreement is one instance where Gugasian paid Keuylian, in cash, $60,430 for a single 2009 Lamborghini LP640. Silly thing is, VW Credit Inc. had originally financed it for $387,720. "

    How do you work with a clear film wrapped panel as opposed to a regular painted one? Do you treat it the same as a clearcoat?

    Ok so your saying you don't polish the film just around it? also if you want to correct the scratches on the film how would you do that thanks.

    Nope. If I used the same process and speed on the film as I did on the paint I would surely have burnt the plastic film and caused major damage.
