Painting my TJ... Leaning towards flat black... Any pics??

WAnt to paint my TJ flat black just not sure how it would look. Any of you got a flat black TJ? Post some pics... Even if it's not flat black I'm open to other colors. Just tired of seeing red, white and yellow jeeps all the time. I want something different.

Go semi-gloss, not flat.

It's not Black, it's not an OE color remember if you don't wash it and it's super dirty; then you don't have to worry about the color under neath. BTW it's red

Yes, do semi-gloss rather than flat.

My tailgate, corners, fenders, and flares were semi-gloss and washed up OK. The flat paint really holds the dirt on a lot more than even semi gloss.

Not to mention that the flat colors always look half-***ed because of the splotchiness. The coats always look uneven.

Bump for what? There's a picture request area if you just want pictures. You have been advised against it by people that have gone for flat paint already. What more do you want?
