New Paint

Finally got her painted. It looks black in the pic but it's a dark grey with a matte clear coat. I'll try and get some more pics in the sunlight so it won't look black. P.S. been a while since i've been on so good to be back!

I'd love to see the pics in the sunlight.

Love the matte look but was always concerned about longevity. Did the clearcoat change the look of the finish?

matte finish clear last just as long as gloss. and won't change the apperance of most colors. HOWER. if you get a little scratch you can"t buff it out like gloss clear coat. Looks great man!

I'm in africa right now at work so when i get home i will post some more pics. All the other pics are on the other comp. It was a lot lighter grey before the matte clear coat and i thought it was too light so i was worried. Then they put the matte clear coat on and it darkened up quite a bit.
