Please let me explain where am I coming from. I own a carbon fiber bike and it's neatly painted with satin black paint by the manufacture. It's not a flat pain, it it a little glossy but almost no shine at all. I was just wondering is there a particular reason why no cars are being painted with this type of paint? Price? Durability? Moral and social standards? I've seen a few custom painted cars, and in my opinion these looked beautiful.
