Hey guys just wondering what some of you think about the latest trend in paint? I like it on some if done properly...def looks good on exotics IMO. Here's a pic(of the Camaro with matte black paint) that I found while perusing the net. Feel free to post your likes/dislikes:thumbsup:

I'm not feeling it, bro. I never was a fan of the 'murdered' look albeit your example shows a bright finish wheel vs. blacked out.

I'm not a huge fan of it, but I would not say that it looks bad. :)
it would take a lot to make a 5th gen look bad...puke green with brown and pink pokadots...maybe.;)

that look was / is really popular in the 40's/50's like on the lead sleds 47/8 mercury's.i think it would be different and i never deter others from that.it would get allot of attention for sure. :thumbsup:

Matte/Flat paint definitely gives a car a more sinister look to it, especially if the car is evil/ugly to begin with.

My GTA will be flat black and then all my other cars...

Jinx has done some Blacks cars for me over the past few years.

I love BLACK, and especially Flat Black, but not so much on the Camaro.

It looks better on Rat Rods....

good point JonZ...the wheels make it look very generic in this pic, although there are many other options other than matte black out there

Not a huge fan of the flat black or semi-gloss look. Unless it's on an off-road truck or something like it.

Matte doesn't work 95% of the time if you do the whole car in a matte finish. In my opinion, matte is great when it's incorporated with metallic paint. For example, I think a thick matte gray or black stripe down the fender line on a Inferno Orange or Cyber Gray would look great. Alternatively, I think a matte black finish on the pillars and roof on a metallic black car would look mean as hell.

Firend of mine just bought an 83 silverado done in a dupont matte finish with custom pinstripping and some 19/20 inch torque thrusts. It looks **** good.

It would help if the original pic in this thread was a better 3D rendering... That one is kinda..... eh... ya know?

I'd like to see a pic of one that's matte black, with a mesh grille, dark smoked head lights & tails, blacked out windows, and medium/high gloss black ss stripes. Turn all the emblems (bowties, ss/rs badges, etc), the exhaust tips, and any chrome accents to black chrome. Add some satin black powder coated 5-spoke wheels. And it would be one MEAN looking camaro!!!

[Goes to put this in PS request thread]
