Re: Painting your vehicle...

This is my second black vehicle, and absolutely luv it, when its clean. In spring the yellow pollen all over it sux. I guess im just not picturing a matt black car, wouldnt it get shiney after waxing it? I think it depends on the kind of car that lets you get away with having a crazy color, like the lime green Lambo Gallardo with matching rims I see in the Dupont Registry, would luv to have that car in any color.

Re: Painting your vehicle...

Matt,

Yeah, I love the matte black look and always visioned it as a dream since due to the re-spray cost.

But since discovering vinyl wrapping I'm thinking of going down that route. The company do the door jambs etc so it will look pretty seamless. It's also reversible if you get fed up with it or sell the truck - major bonus!

Timmy: You don't wax/polish matte black paintwork, if you put waxes/sealants on them it practically destroys the finish. So its just a case of washing and drying.

Vinyl wraps are also sensitive to wax, but some waxes have been know to work although they are nowhere near as durable as if they were on paintwork but it does help when washing.

Re: Painting your vehicle...

I think Marty's right, with flat paint, the more you touch it the shinier the paint gets, I think I read that from the guy with the fully murdered SRT8 Jeep, I think he's on the site somewhere.

That would be the worst if you had shiny spots here and there.
