Stealthy! :D

Isn't matt black a pain to keep clean though? Greasy fingerprints spring to mind.

Its not that hard it just takes time, just start from the inside out, meaning behind lights, trims and work your way out.
just rubbed it down with gray scotchbright till paint lost its shine then sprayed over it.
I did the full out side of the car in one day by myself, did take me 7 hours tho as i had perspex windows fitted aswel the same day.

I still need to do the inside but that can wait. :wink:

You've done a sterling job of your car!  You have some good skills ...not many things you cant turn around!  This matt black is now possibly my fave stealth colour!   8)   Looks like a NATO secret weapon!   :twisted:  (agreed...would look even better with the inside done...  :wink:  )

 Also...  hats off to your mate helping you with the windows, they looks spot on and must be a massive weight saving  8)
