  • [Non Corsa] Spraying a car Matt black

    When spraying a car Matt black do you do the same process as normal colours? Eg sand down, primer, spray then lacquer? Or is it just simply spray the car with Matt paint?

    You can do it normally but flat back and spray works just as well for matte black, it looks poo though

            Was thinking about it but how much would it cost to do a medium sized car?

                  Think its around 350 for the kit for a small sized car but that comes with everything you need from sprayer/compressor to microfibre cloths. Find the main guy who does it on YouTube and his website has the best prices by far

                      Wrappings probably the way to go I'd say.
                      There's a 5-door XE on here wrapped Matt black and it looks great.

                          Wrapping would be the best option.
                          Car would hold its value and you don't have to worry so much about stone chips, with there not being the protective clear coat present.
