Twinsen I've decided I'm going to paint my sportbike the matte black first to see how it turns out and then make my decision on the truck after that. The guy is only going to charge me $250 for the bike, so not really losing out on it anyway. Even though it's my favorite color, black/yellow, I'm kind of bored with it now and want something unique (in Memphis) that no one else has really done.

NO MATTER Id have to ask but I know the wraps on our Savana service trucks cost $1900 installed so I would guess somewhere around there?

How much does something like that generally run?

Mongo Flat Dark Green; a.k.a. Forest Green

Someone had pics up of a Commander repainted like that, it looked like a magazine or club vehicle.

If you go flat paint or black, something to consider for the CHROME; BLACK CHROME. Ever seen polished hematite, Black Chrome looks like it, very shinny like chrome, but has a black base, at some angles it looks silver/black, other angles like super glossy wet black and other angles like silver reflective chrome with a black base underneath.

IamJEEP A two-tone of matte black and gloss black would be different.

DetroitMarauder The matte black would look sick with your darkened lenses and just a little chrome.

I would not do flat black, it's so played out beyond the point of being cool.

I think a cool metallic gun metal/black finish would look awesome on a Commander.
Yes, this would be a legit paint job by a guy I know that did some clean-up work on my Infiniti.

Looks like it's neck and neck between keeping it white and going with Gunmetal.
