What really sucks about this color is that is very hard to see any kind of defects in the paint. They can only be seen in very specific lighting, and even then only at certain angles. This sucks when it comes to correcting, because it is very easy to miss defects, and hard to tell if you have removed them. It also makes you have to apply coatings “Blind” since you can’t see the coating going on or flashing. Also, no matter what you do, it will only just look OK, and never have the depth that any other color will have. You won’t see the defects, but you will know they are there, which I don’t like.
Your words cut so deep!

I'm sitting here with my 3rd black car saying I'll never get it again because no matter how hard you try, the imperfections are always there and always visible.

Nice write-up though and great attention to detail with your work!
