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

So fresh off my replacing of all my MDS lifters and now that the truck is running good, I plan to turn my attention to the outside. For those who don't know I have an white 05 Limited with a 5.7. My plan was to be a poser...giving the truck the full SRT look. My son wants me to reshoot it with flat clear since thats all the rage right now. I'm all for trendy but I'm not the biggest flat paint job fan. Just reminds me of a person that never took care of the car and it just faded to a flat finish.

What do you guys think of the flat look?

I think it would look pretty unique! Instead of Spraying it with Flat Clear you can get some kind of Flat Wrap to make it look like it has the Matte look!

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

you can spray it with clear plasti dip, that turns it into an opaque matt finish showing the original color through. later on, with some effort, you can peel the plasti dip off.

I'm really tired of hearing about Plasti Dip (LOL) It seems to be all the rage on the forums.

Plasti Dip = Fad

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

eh i say go for it. who cares if it's a fad...how many flat white vehicles do you see on a daily basis? esp. in white...i think it'll be pretty original looking on a wk.

i also agree on the plasti-dip comment...i cringe every time i see that word(s?) lol.

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

I agree "flat" regularly looks unfinished. I think one that semi gloss is as sexy as ANY paintjob gets! I would do semigloss if I had the ability... but paying to have someone do it is NEVER going to happen.
