What are the chances of...

the Anodized Carbon paint - going on the limited edition Viper - becoming available for sale? How sick would that look on my Jeep? Anyone have any pull?

Re: What are the chances of...

I do not know about the Viper paint maintenance, but the matt black on the new BMW M5 comes with think manual on how to maintain the paintwork. If you want this type of finish, I would just wrap the car, as the paint would be a PIA to look after long term.

Anodized Carbon is a fancy way of saying matte silver.

Re: What are the chances of...

Hate to be an asshole...no just kidding I love being one...but matte paint is so damn bootleg. It was cool when a few people had it..but once again, thanks to the damned internet everyone copied it and now it's played out. Kind of like blacked out vehicles, yeah when no one had that it looked bad ass, but now every little wanna be thug white boy from the suburbs has it, shitty tattoos included.

I'd rather them focus on giving us better SRT specific colors with a higher quality paint process. Then again the billet silver paint I have is incredible for our price point. My wife's paint job on her ML looks like garbage compared to the Jeep.

That color is sick. I would definitely think about wrapping mine that color when I'm tired of having white.

It all boils down to personal preference. What other people do, no matter how many other people do it, is irrelevant to what someone personally likes. I think this matte paint, along with hint of gloss that was incorporated, would look fantastic on the 14 SRT. That paint would compliment the gloss black front grill, nicely. Add in my gloss black Cor 22's, gloss black side window trim and grill rings, and that Jeep looks incredible. Again, that would be a personal preference issue, though; someone else may hate it. It's irrelevant, however, as they aren't the owner.
