I was just wondering if anyone has ever painted their lowers black on a black car.
Im interested in how it would look.
Pictures would be appreciated.

I think Nor_Cal_driver has that. Maybe it was someone else, I dunno. Whoever it was posted up pics in a thread a few months back. It looks good as hell.

All I'm waiting for is for someone to confirm the proper black to match.

I plan to take the rear valence off the car and use primer to fill in the texture instead of sanding everything down.

My car is volcano black. Its a dark black / grey with pearl in it.

I painted the lowers a couple years back. I think it looks pretty damn good.

The front valence will chip if you don't use at least hard urethane clear coat. I originally used paint from paintscratch.com. It was an ok match..

Go to your local PPG paint store and get the factory paint. I did and I am going to respray this spring with an actual catalyzed clear coat.

I would, but the car is covered in salt right now. We got some snow last night.

When you say "black lowers, are you referring to the trims at the bottom of the doors . fenders?

Or painting the car black below the mouldings?

The sides

Cool. So in effect, two-tone?

he's talking about the lower parts that are black. The rubber door trim and the platic valances.
