Flat black or Gloss?
I plan on getting my truck repainted since it pretty scratched up, and i cant decide on getting it flat black or just repainting it gloss black. Just want to see what some of yall think i should do, so i can get a better idea.

Flat black looks better on older trucks IMO, I would do gloss black if it were me. @ChromeSilver02, that GMC dually looks awesome, reminds me of something out of Mad Max.04 ECSB Custom silver & grey, Soft 8's, BFG KO's, ReadyLift Leveling Kit, Hellwig front sway bar, K&N filter, DeeZee EZ-Down, Rhino liner, Alpine CDE103BT, Rockford 6.5's, 12" V.A.T.

I'd go with gloss black. I think the flat black paint is just another fad. IMO nothing looks better than a deep, shiney black truck.:cool:

I agree with silverdotrailblazer, a good gloss black will look better than flat black. Flat looks like some kid did it in his garage if you ask me, although both of those line-x'd trucks look decent.

I would paint it white. Easier to keep clean, easier to keep cool and does not show door dings as bad.86 911 Porsche Carrera
