Flat/matte would be best. Going to rattle can it black this winter break. I "off-road" it too much to do a nice BC/CC paint job.

Where it's blue, make it black, please.




In that picture I photoshopped the wheels black, the running boards black, and tinted the windows. Now it has black running boards and black wheels (that I actually did, not photoshopped), but I just want a black car to see what it'd look like.

If I could, do you think I would have posted?

I obviously don't know how. I looked up tutorials, but can't get anywhere close to the results they did.

Heated garage. 70F.
Painted my truck when it was 50F outside, 82F in the garage ... with "real" BC/CC (IE, more picky about temperature). Came otu great.

That looks sick as hell. Pook, I demand you paint your beetle matte black immediately.

Thank you sir.
Will rep you as soon as the + rep button comes back ...

Chrome shiny bits (like the headlight rims, window rims, etc and i think that thing will really pop...

almost looks like an old 50's roadster blacked out like that.

Exactly.

This is what gave me the idea:

YouTube- Spiderbait - Black Betty: Video
I don't like chrome head light rings, though.
