caring for flat/matte paint
« on: January 06, 2018, 07:19:48 AM »

My 2018 Zero S has a silver matte finish, which is the first vehicle that I have ever owned that uses this type of finish. I believe that other 2018 Zero models also use this type of finish. Here is a link to an article describing how to care for this type of finish.  Apparently it tends to be kind of delicate: http://www.automobilemag.com/news/flat-finish-how-you-should-tend-to-matte-automotive-paint-161429/

After owning a 749 Dark, I never want another matte finish anything again. Soo hard to clean without accidentally "polishing"
