Re: Thinking of doing a Flat White Paint Job....

I checked on a flat back wrap for my ctsv a couple years ago. For $4k i think i'll find other uses for my cash. The flat finish is a maintenance nightmare, combine that with the color white and im not sure how that would pan out over a year or two. Wouldnt it get dirty?

Re: Thinking of doing a Flat White Paint Job....

Exactly! Flat white vinyl wouldnt work out well. Cover the thing in white bedliner and drive through some mesquite trees with ease!

Re: Thinking of doing a Flat White Paint Job....

The "flat" look is produced by using a flat clear instead of a glossy clear. A flat paint job will have the same protection as its glossy counterpart. I'm not sold however on the flat version. White might now be too big of a deal, but we did a flat upper on a WB Charger we did last year and I hated it. Good thing is all you would have to do is scuff it down and reshoot it with gloss clear if you get tired of it.

Re: Thinking of doing a Flat White Paint Job....

what about keeping it gloss but paint the hood/grille/roof flat. might look cool.

Re: Thinking of doing a Flat White Paint Job....

^^ HAHA Nate that is your fave! My Dad is @ Pamona Speedway right now racing...just did hot laps with a pro driver in a Cayenne Hybrid haha, he was keeping up with Panamera's haha!

IDK about the flat white...I would paint all trim white (chrome door sills, rockers and window trim) to match the Jeeps existing finish and get some black rims...if you are going to do a matte finish white imo is not the way to go, now gun-metal or black is a different story

Just put on chrome SRT reps so they're going to stay a while.
