I think it looks good, but I prefer the natural finish. Maybe if the body was a lighter color...

Plastidip is naturally matte. There is clear coat glossifier but it still won't look like glossy paint (more like semi gloss) because of the texture.

I think it looks good! ...for some reason, Plastidip doesn't look as black as it should in pics. But it definitely does in person.

PS: I have that same exact ///M banner...lol

It does look darker (black, not dark gray) in person. Although I like the color for now I don't think I will make a permanent switch.

PS: lol Ebay baby!
