This might be the way to go for refinishing an older car with a crappy paint job. It'd look way better than any cheap paint job from Maaco, Earl Shieb, etc.; at least the color would be even! Longevity ... yeah, I know it's not forever, but neither is a respray either; you get what you pay for with cheap paint jobs

Sigh, nice way to decrease the value of the vehicle by thousands! I can see someone doing this with an older vehicle but something that new is stupid. My buddy has the same look with a 2001 F150. Use to have white now as this. Alot of people thought he got a new truck.

How much are a few rattlecans of flat black ?

Bet they're less than $120, and your car will look just as stupid.

Some folks shouldn't be allowed out on their own.

You guys seem to miss the obvious point here.

You can rip it off again and underneath you'll have a perfectly kept paint job, making it more attractive on the used car market.

You know, you get all kinds of nice benefits if you think a little sometimes.
