Re: WHat do you guys think of matte black?

IMO I would go with Satin black instead of matte. Matte shows everything including finger prints. the oils from our hands gets on the paint and its hard to clean. Everyone that sees your car will want to touch it to see if its really matte. My paint guy showed me a sample of the satin he does, and its sick. Plus it doesnt show prints near as much and it way easier to keep looking clean.

Re: WHat do you guys think of matte black?

Dont do your car flat black, flat black looks good on rims and small things but imo looks like a cheap half ass paint job when done on the car.

Re: WHat do you guys think of matte black?

Yea I think we need pics of the model to determine if your car will look good in flat black. it will also be good for science

so this is rattle can flat black and if it looks terrible I'll eat my shoe. Don't blame the paint, blame the person behind the can.

very difficult to clean without ruining the paint, they do make a matte clear which gives the paint protection without a bright shine. cleaning the car will be much easier, and the whole job will hold up a lot longer.

thanks for the compliment on the bike, I should probably make a thread for all the repairs I did on it lol.
