Matte Black Paint Job

Ok, well im kinda a newbee but am gettin ready to purchase a Black 350 King Ranch. I want to black it out, but i want to do something different. I want to do the body in Matte Black. Then pull the bumpers, grill, emblems, tube steps, mirrors, and anything else that is chrome and paint it gloss black. Just wondering what you guys thought about this idea. If you think its stupid tell me, it wont hurt my feelings. If ya like it let me know or give give me more ideas.

Thanks
Chase

Had friend that did this with his bike. It looked AWESOME. That being said, it was a ***** to keep clean. Damn near impossible.

If ya go with the satin/matte, I don't think I'd mix any gloss with it. Just my $.02

Ya dont mix with gloss black trim. Do a flat red or flat black.




everything looks good on this pete except the shiny bed if you ask me, but that will dull soon enough.

yeah the matte black would be different but for a daily driver itd be mighty hard to keep clean and be able to pull the good looking paint job off.
