You really can't see the metal flake until you're very close.

so it shows well on a 22' truck? it looked sharp on the edge i was lookin at..
does it hide some of the issues standard black has with it? swirls, dings, and such..

As you can see, there's a bit of a change from shadow to sun, but it's pretty understated.

man. thats sharp. I cant wait!!

i was really on the fence about going with the sterling grey again or the black. every time i have a black truck i tell myself never again, but then when i look at em they sell themself. I said screw it since im OCD about keeping it clean and went with the black and tan combo (tuxedo black and adobe).... now im super stoked about the tuxedo as its "almost" best of both worlds.

This my first black vehicle and it really looks nice. I went black outside and inside and have since added black accessories from N-Fab and Recon. At some point, I'll bite the bullet on a headlight solution and some sort of billet grill. When I do that I'll get the grill surround painted TB.

The black you ordered you won't be disappointed with.

I prefer the orange lights, too.

And I love the tan interior with the Black,

And if you have to repair a body panel. The Tuxedo black is really easy to match up.

It is "sparkly" in the sunlight when clean. It is also not metal flake. It is a crushed glass bead in the paint which gives it a rainbow prism effect. It is a very unique paint.

Well that is quite different...I am a huge fan of the black on black...especially when it has just been cleaned! Unfortunately one day of surface dust and you see it right away. California duster to the rescue!!
