Here is a pic if you like I can read the article again if you have any questions I have that Truckin' issue. I don't know the difference between a suede black paint job or flat black but I think they call this one suede.

It's like my helmet in the picture below. It's not flat black, it's called Satin Black. It has a cleaner look than just flat black.

yea in a recent RIDES magazine a couple dj's that worked together had an '07 tahoe all flat black including headlights taillights and rims-it was bad azz...
i was thinkin' of doing my truck the same way but with a lime green pinstrpe you know the old hot rod look i think it'll look killer on an f-150 just dont do it with lime green haha ....definitely gonna come back for 2007

flat black needs some accent colors to pull it of without looking tacky
