Flat Black Dakota pics?

Anyone happen ever happen to see a flat/matte black dakota? I'm thinking about painting mine one of the two if I don't paint it white. Just wondering what it would look like and if I'd justify spending the money for it. Please post some pics if you have.

If it has wheels or a skirt, you can't afford it.

That looks a lot better than I thought it would, might have to consider it. Thanks for the links. Google didn't have any good ones.

Done right they can look great on any vehicle.

I don't have a 'kota but my 1500 is Satin Black and i think it looks pretty good. That said - they are a PIA to maintain. I am pretty close with going with another satin theme. blue or some time that make the dirt blend in. lol

Well I guess I need to find a shop that can do it right. Do scratches show up pretty easily? My toyota was glass black and it was a pain in the ass to keep clean which is why I was thinking white

Scratches will show since it is a black color but so will fingerprints and grease. A lot of satin/matte/flat are single stage so you can't just buff or wax a scratch out. That's paint out there of course that gives the satin look with full clear coat protection so you can treat it like any other gloss paint.

I may go with a satin blue or orange theme next so the dirt blends in lol.

Yep i will not own a black vehicle ever lol.
I live in a area that has 4 miles of graded dirt roads so i have pretty much given up and only wash the exterior every few months now. As long as the engine is tip top and interior is clean then i am all good.

Well it has a few scratches but no dents. I just don't like the paint scheme. I bought it like that because it was pretty close to what I wanted to do with my old truck but now I've changed my mind on how I want it to look. Either all one color or another color that will look good with black accents such as white, red, blue, and I was considering that amber fire color also. But since it's a truck I don't want to worry about the paint getting messed up all the time which is why I was thinking white. But I love the look of an all black truck.

Love the paint and the red hood scoop. Truck looks pretty sick and I will definitely consider it now. Its just a pain in the ass to keep a truck clean in the summer when you work on a ranch. Even if I don't drive it the dust goes everywhere. I can't complain though I guess, I have a truck I love and keeping it clean is all a part of the adventure I suppose.
