Have fun taking care of matte paint... :eek:

Looks a bit tiger-stripey on the side panels. Pretty common if you don't lay the matte clear just right. Where did you have it painted?

Local body shop my friend works at.
the paint job came out good but the stripes you see are from the car wash using the wrong wax, and yeah I'm gonna have a lot of fun taking care of it thanks for reminding me

Matte gray wouldn't be my color choice, but it's cool you went with actual paint instead of dip. Are there more pics?

I was thinking about going matte gray but my car is black so I went with the same color plus I HATE Plasty dip.
And I have pics of the prep work and I can always take more pictures.
this pic was before I had it washed

Oh, so it's matte black. The first pic looked lighter from the lighting.

Matte gray looks like primer, which is why I wouldn't choose it.

It's matte black with a little shine into it it's kinda like satin it's hard to explain but the clear that I used it makes the car look semi-gloss in the son
