They really were Sparkling Black

Post by New Duke »

I just found a photo that I took last summer after a car clean. I think it's good example to show how much metal flake is in the Sparkling Black paint and of it sparkling nicely, which I don't think is often obvious from afar.

Please excuse the bug in the middle! I was photographing bugs landing on the paint and... frying. 8-[

I'd assume you just used that to give the camera something to focus on ;)

My VFR is Raspberry Pearl Black, while Pauline's GPz is Purple Pearl Black.
They both just look Black in the shade, and wow in the sun.
