Don't know if I wanna do black or gunmetal. Trying to get rid of the chrome. Would the car look good with black or gunmetal emblems and stock wheels?

This is all CF, but you get the idea.

I used a paint with a very mild rough finish. It also has 2 coats of clear sprayed over the black. I was concerned that wax would be an issue on the finish but it's just smooth enough that there is no buildup at all. I like the more aggressive look - it brings the focus right to the grille as it should.

I think Triple's and Endgame did their fangs in a nice smooth matte. Someone a while back did a DIY on this procedure but I forget who it was
