So i know we've seen a cpl matte and satin black cars, but what about a white... I goggled the idea and ran across a cpl vipers and a vette that way but I kind of want everyone's opinion on this... I'm thinking satin white body, matte sail panel,berger, and matte hockey stripes... This would save some serious cash on the paint... but let me know your feed back and here are the pics of the viper, a 350z, and a bmw
How far are you along on this idea? I've got a guy saying he'll do it cheap and I'm thinking really hard about this... I've been dieing to repaint my car , its in need of a paint job anyway..the first one is how it sits now, and the other is when i first got it painted after i wrecked, since then deers and accident have ate it up, hench the black hood
You think normal white is tough to keep clean, wait til you paint it Satin white. Satin colors attract dirt and it sticks, its just the nature of the color, because in order for it to give the satin appearance, the finish is "rougher" so everything sticks to it like velcro.

The vette looks more like a peal white w a satin clear finish,the cost would prob b close to the same as any color change, professional shop 6-9,000 would b my guess if you want it right,cause it's still the same amount of work
I mean pearl white sorry,I think it looks good though, the biggest concern I would have is how long would this kind of paint job hold up if it's a daily driver cause rock chips n bugs would probably kill the front of it, I'm not sure cause I've never painted a flat colored car,so check with paint company's to find out,if you like it do it I say cause it looks good,but trough some high gloss black like the vette and I've always thought chime wheels looked good with white cars!
i like the colors in satin....the orange is awesome, i wanna do my car orange but i work for home depot so people will think i really like working for the company, so im doing blue.
but i agree that white will be the fad after black wears out then i think the colors will come after
