Okay, I agree. That looks better with the smoke color.

The plastidip suggestion was just a quick and cheap way to test what black would really look like. And although plastidip offers a charcoal or smoke gray color, I think you'd be happier in the end having a professional paint job done.

That's a great looking car and -- personally -- I think the darker looks better, accepting that there IS a point of diminishing returns. The gray can be too dark if you aren't careful.

Good luck and post pics if you go through with it.
