    Reflective Black?

    So I am gonna get the vinyl overlays for the Trans Am emblems on the doors and the back Pontiac inserts too but i wanna see if there is a difference between how the black looks from just "Black" to "Reflective Black"? I'm kinda leaning to the Reflective Black but I'm a little skeptical on how the black is going to look. So my question is, has anybody gotten the Reflective Black? If so, can i see some pics? Thanks!

    Yea I unfort got reflective black. A huge mistake. Since it's reflective it looks silver most of the time. If I where u or I where to do it again I would go black. That was the biggest waist of 60 bucks towards my car yet.

    $60 for what?

    I work at a sign shop. Our reflective black looks black in the day time and blackish silver ( dont remember, lol) at night.

    If I remember I will take a few pics for you tomorrow.

    Ouch...you got screwed on that price. The only black reflective that does that is cheap reflective.


    Its suppose to look black when no lights hit it at night. But when you flash a light close to it it should shine black.

    Well guys i decided to not take chances and just get the normal black. I ordered the blackbird stripes for the hood and the trans am overlays and the pontiac inserts. They should all be here this week

    reflective black is silver or white when it reflects depending on the company that makes the vinyl. Not a good choice if your expecting anything but silver or white in most lighting conditions

    This is reflective black on my hood, Looks back in daytime, with a tad of silver specs around and throught it, but it looks black, And when its night out, and light hits it, it reflects a DARK brown, black color, im happy with it
