Satin black?

Been thinking about going "Rat Rod" style on my smoothed 76 Terra. I talked to a guy with a high buck 32 (the flamed 32 on the Ebay add in all the car magazines) and he said to go the John Deere paint route. My idea is to paint it black than have polished Torq thrust D's on it to give it a serious rod look. Going satin black is a real consern becouse I could have gloss black for the same price and you know how good that looks. Give me some pro's and con's on which way to go. I'm starting to lose sleep on making this decision. Thanks

You said gloss black is costing you just as much as flat black. So obviously money isnt the issue but looks. I personally dont like the look of flat black with chrome or billet wheels. They dont match in my opinion. If your going flat black I'd go with painted steelies or chrome reversed wheels or some moon caps. And for the type of car you have, a '76 Tera, I wouldnt go flat black. Gloss black would look better.

I don't like flat black either. The Terra is now in DP90 and I hate the look. I think the satin would be OK. I think the wheels should be chrome, painted or mags anything with a big contrast to the black.

Going flat or satin is definetly not the norm for me. I bought some Blitz Black today, I'll try it out on part of the Terra and see how it looks. I know its hard to beat a shinny red or black rig.

Check out my journal....I prefer flat black with polished wheels...the wheels and handles standout against the flat black ,and that's what I wanted.
