WK brilliant black better then clear coat black??
Hello, just saw on an eBay auction for a WK rocky mtn that was in brilliant black crystal that they state this new black does not show swirls and goes not get as dirty as the old clear coat black. I emailed them to ask why this was, their answer was
"Clear Coat paint has nothing to reflect light other than the clear coat itself. It shows the polishing swirls which are nearly unavoidable. And since black has the highest contrast, it shows these swirls more than any other color.
The Brilliant Black Crystal as well as any other Pearl Coat or Metallic Paint has something beneath the clear coat to reflect light. Therefore, it has depth. Because of this depth, swirls in the clear coat are not as noticable. There is no question that the Brilliant Black paint will look better for longer than the traditional Black Clear Coat. In fact, many of the high-end luxury makes now offer a similar black metallic paint including BMW, Volvo, and Mercedes."
Just wondering if someone on here with the brilliant black in the WK could comment on how hard/easy it is to keep the black clean and also any swirls in the paint that is so common on black cars?
Thanks a ton, Bill
