Re: Matte/flat black paint

they both look about the same, if your doing emblems or something like that I would do mate black just because then you can use plastic dip and then if you don't like it you can just take it off.

Re: Matte/flat black paint

if you do your whole car in it do a vinyl wrap. the worst thing that can happen is u can take it off and be back to your old paint. much more cost efficient if your not 100% on it

I was looking into wrapping my car and I was told by the shop here matte black and satin black cost about 15-16 dollars a square foot for material only. Then on top of that you add application.
Carbon fiber vinyl wrap is 18 a square foot.
I love the matte black look but I don't know if I love it at that price.

you can get a "wrap" done to do this but it wont cover door jams, has to come off in 5 years, and is NOT cheap (4k or so~)
