Anyone else with a Carbon Metallic notice how it takes on shades of other colors in various lighting and angles. I see a blue hue, a green hue, and a purple/pink hue in it at times. Very interesting color and far more satisfying than I originally thought it would be.

Yes I do.........and I have a lot of people ask me what color it is. Some have thought it was green, and I've had people think it has purple and blue in it. It all depends on how the sun hits it.......

I love the carbon metallic. I pretty much only want metallics colors because when they are shined up nice the metal flakes pop and it looks awesome. The fact it is a dark color gives it a deep rich wet look as well when clean. You just need to keep it clean and it's incredible. It is my weekly wash.

Check that metal flake after a clay bar then Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant topped with Pinnacle SIgnature Series II Carnauba Wax.

With the right lighting and reflections you will begin seeing more than black and gray.

I have to say that that is possibly the best photo I have seen that truly show what Carbon looks like in real life. I know. I have plenty of photos of my Carbon, but none that good.

Good job Boots :thumb:
