They have matte black paint with the clear for it so its not like its just primmered. You can wax it and everything just like a regular paint job. My favorite is the flat blue harley davidson.

Hey now, I thought you said it was going to be up to the org to decide what you end up doing?!! As far as the pole goes, the majority (47.06%) said matte. What's up with that?
