Re: Who makes the blackest of black paint
Hi Ohio from MI.
My Dad owned an auto paint supply store and sold auto paint to hundreds of body shops and dealerships. I grew up in body shops looking at paint jobs.
(I love great paint, especially black!!!)
Many things have change drastically in auto paints, but still equally important in paint jobs is "the job", ie how much work is put into the prep , painting and post work.
All paints are a combo of many colors even blacks and whites. Find an accual car with a black you love (as long as you know your ordering a fatory color or if custom (what it is). Then order that color model year and color code.
Find a car with a great color and paint job and show your painter that's what you want.
In high school two friends had new "69 Z-28s. One a white with black sripes the other yellow with black stipes. We would drive around with both cars and always get lots of attention. Have fun with your Z!
Good fortune with your paint,
