Wisshockey99 I have heard that flat black does easily scratch, im looking at either Gloss Black or Matte Black

InfernoGirl Metallic black looks dusty/dirty all the time. Flat paint us softer than gloss. Even with a clear coat over it, assuming you would also use a flat clear coat. Gloss would be my recommendation for those reasons.

XJ Knight At this point in time.. While I like flat black.. I think gloss black is a better choice if doing a whole vehicle

tlrrob1000 I vote Matte black. This process has come a long way. You can have a clear coat over it to keep the finish clean.

Jerry Bransford The last color I'd paint a Jeep that is driven on the street too is flat black. Gloss black yes, not flat.

KBR97 I like flat black with a nice coat of clear on top.

Ibuildembig Doesnt matter on the color as much as the quality of the paint. I only use one of 3 brands...Dupont, PPG, and House of Kolor
