    I have what may be a dumb question about the BHLM. Which is better Flat or Gloss black for blacking out these bad boys?

    Personal preference but I believe most use flat. I would think gloss would give it that 'cheap plastic look'.

    We are thinking we should use flat. Just trying to get a feel for what other people have done and how they liked it.
