True, but DYC also has a few flavors in this color family you can rarely get at a hardware store. Due to the way that the matte colors reflect light and/or how it was photographed as well as the lighting when it was photographed, it can be hard to tell if it's charcoal, the regular flat black or even the new anthracite. And now that I looked at the beginning of the post, he mentioned flex seal.

I can't believe how that stuff makes such an appearance difference!! I am impressed. Wish the wind would die down so I could try mine out. Was gonna try my hood down the cowl lines. See if I should paint it like that.

Just try it out it dries rather quickly just cover EVERYTHING cause you don't want over spray

Hit mine up, the chrome was a little jacked from PO. For what it is, I love Plastidip.

I'm thinking about doing the inserts on my stock V6 Premium wheels. Love the wheels but they are gun metal gray painted inserts and black would go so much better with the flat black racing stripes and rear louver. How many coats, how much time between coats? How many cans did you use?
