flat black only looks good on super cars and on my computer case.

the SLR looks hot w/ the background lol, maybe change to another style of wheels will be better?

it looks like someone forgot to finish painting the car, imo.
but yes, looks great on some cars. fast cars. the real sports cars.

I think a good way to illustrate the difference...Super Cars flat black are sick..cause everyone knows the performance capabilities of the vehicle. Painting the car flat black makes it more low key looking and gives it a stealth type feel. Anything other than a serious performance car being painted flat black...you run the risk of it just looking like a half ass project.

It's really hard to tell the diff between flat black satin additive and actual primer...

esp. since this new urethane primer surfacer stuff pretty much shines like a satin paintjob.

(lol i saw a sema evo somewhere with special rules about how to prep the car: don't wash with this, only use that, blah blah blah. just paint the dang thing. 'hotrod' flat black was never 'in' lolz.)

lol yea some people cant afford it so they rock the flat black, but no offense to anyone, cuz im half mes, but its usually mex....lol

I don't mind flat black if they use a black basecoat then shoot clear as a stencil to use the gloss as part of an intricate design, but when it's all pretty much like primer, everyone will look at it as nothing more than 'work in progress'.

the 'primer style' started in the 60s and ended in the 60s... hopefully it shall stay that way but apprently it hasn't. :crying: (i just really really really don't like the look.)

lmao its gonna happen more than you want it to. ive seen some older rides with that look and it just goes with them; but seeing a CRX with half done primer or other people trying to IMITATE that 'flat black/color' look is just bad.

I think it depends on the car and the quality of the paint job. I don't think it should be done on Honda's and things like that, but the higher end cars come out good, as long as the quality of the job is good.
