Flat black anyone?
 
I don't know what to say :cool: I kinda' think it looks cool but wouldn't it be hot in summer

Hmm. Not too bad but it's not something I would do.

MR.CLIFFORD 11-15-2009 08:47 AM

meh

Photoshop? It looks cool. Try olive drab green. I think an OD Green or a flat Desert Sand Tan JK would look pretty good. :punk:

Coyote_94YJ 11-15-2009 10:03 AM

I'd pass on the OD green, but desert sand tan would look very nice.

Here in SoCal it is the thing with us off road guy's. Looks great but I would not do it due to the fact that it does get hot.
It is a pretty cool process though. I've seen it done as a wrap and at a paint shop with a clear coat over it to protect it.
Hey Clifford what the hell is meh? School me Hommer.

no it's not photoshop, I found it on Jeep facebook, the owners name is Abdullah Ahmad.
I wouldn't do it personally, I like the clear coat colors

It wouldnt get any hotter than a gloss black paint job.

It looks...eh. I'd have to see it in person.

It looks like it is made out of clay or playdoh.

when u get in an accident, you could just re mold it to make it look new, or, even better then new

jgano23 11-16-2009 07:48 AM

meh. i'm not a fan of flat black on the jk. it looks kinda weird. but it is your jeep. it only matters if you like it.

Screwjack 11-16-2009 09:47 PM

That'd be great till I went out at night and walked smack into it in the driveway.

The flat black look was huge a year ago at SEMA, and mostly gone this year. A few flat black sports cars.

I understand that true flat paint jobs scratch very easily.

Lotus did a neat one recently. They use some sort of flat coating - they described it as "rubberized" for most of the car, and then a stripe of glossy black.

Eh...it's looks alright I think.
It's nice to see something different.

Don't think I'd do it to a brand new Jeep though.
But then again, I wouldn't buy a JK anyways. ;)
