Default Has it been done??? (Flat Black F-Body)

I saw this car and it got me to thinking...



Are there any Flat-Black Trans Am's out there???

If not, any photoshop Guru's wanna tackle this for me???

I am SERIOUSLY thinking about this after seeing that car...

If 'chopped, I'd black out the DRL's, front and rear side markers and tail lights.

Thanks!!!

GM Performance Parts LS7 Camaro is flat black, looks great. As for the trans ams, haven't seen one yet. The Camaro is featured in a past issue of GMHTP magazine.

That is about what I have in mind... I really think I want to go with shiny wheels though, either chrome or polished. I like black-on-black, but that's a little too much with it being flat maybe...???

The GMPP camaro is more of a semi-gloss if you ask me. Might be the lighting. Cant find any firebirds done in flat though.

That right there is one sweet freakin picture!!!! The flat looks real nice. I was never a fan before but that looks damn good. I agree with the wing thing tho.

I never thought I`d say this, but that Trans AM looks awesome! Especially with the Chrome 10 spokes!

Looks good but how the hell do you take care of a paint job like that. Wash it of course but I would imagine waxing it would be a major no no. Unless theres a special wax or cleaner

If everything works out, I'll be having an LS-1 WS-6 in Satin or Matte black ASAP!

I will be on Stock 17" Polished wheels for a while, I'll be sure to post up pics.

I am also interested in how-to care for that paint...???

I think thats awsome. Before you paint though make sure you figure out how to care for it. Might be more trouble maintaining then its worth. I hope not because I want to see some pics
