    HEllo guys,
    For the ones who did the BHLM mod on their tacos, did you took a black matte or a black glossy? I hesite between the both but I guess the matte will give a better result?

    I think mine was gloss. I used krylon fusion and I don't remember having a choice

    And just so you don't think I'm talking out of my ass here is the finished result with matte black.

    I'm not going to do the new truck though. There isn't enough "surround" to warrant a BHLM on the later models.

    krylon fusion semi gloss came out great for me.

    I bought and used the Krylon flat black, there were only 3 left in store. So I took one for my beast ;). Thanks guys for the help, as usual...
    Will post some pics when I'll finish my BHLM.
