    Winter Matte Paint Care

    Why not just put a car cover over it if you're expecting snow?

    I would think you'd be fine as long as your not rubbing the paint with the cover vigorously... it's not like the paint is a baby's ass, it's durable from what I've read and seen.

    Matte Paint SPEC SHEET
    When i first aquired my matte vt last nov. i stumbled across the spec sheet online. Thought i bookmarked it, but then i couldnt find it again. This is the paint manufacturers detailed instructions on how to use this paint. This is crucial info. A bodyshop needs to follow, if god forbid you ever need to have any paint or bodywork done.
    Of course we'd like to think that they would also aquire this info. But you know what happens when we assume the obvious.
    Anyway, i wanted to make sure i was able to get this info. Again, so i got in touch with PPG and had it sent to me. Unforunately it was scanned upside down and sent as a pdf.
    Id like to make this available to all the matte owners, but im not really down for uploading this stuff (9) pages, or trying to get it right side up. If one of you guys want to put it up, pm me and ill forward the email to you. Us matte owners are in good company, i was told this paint is also used on Lamborghinis

    The snow falling on your parked car isn't the problem, its no different than rain. Its the snow on the road that's wet mixed with salt and sand that poses the problem. Can't have a cover while driving

    To all the na Sayers, get one. I have decades of experience and this matte gray is the easiest finish I have ever kept. Seal the clear coat after first wash and nothing more than a fifty fifty solution of alcohol and distilled water for spot removal. Thanks Hyundai for growing a pair.....
