Classic Ford Capri with matt black paint the 2006 Death Race Capri. Creating a matt black finish is relatively easy but the spray job can be unforgiving as you can’t smooth down rough patches afterwards. But why go with matt black paint at all?
Matt black car paint finishes are making a comeback, as is the rat look. This death race Capri photograph above shows a Skull and racing flag emblem in a semi polished black which contrasts nicely with the matt black paint of the rest of the bonnet. A matt black paint effect is relatively easy to create, after the paint application you simply do not apply a clearcote or polish (with cutting paste) and the paint will stay flat. A layer of wax will protect it although the wax will give a slight sheen to the surface. Matt paint can be hard to keep clean as the dirt seems to bond better to it.
