Not as shiny as black, but still pretty good for silver

Ha ha, your reflection makes it look like you have no torso; just arms, a head, and legs.

Satin silver metallic with one coat of Mequiar's Gold Class. Agreed it does look white in this pic - natural light in the garage makes it look a little off. Stood on the door sill to take the pic (no sunroof, and didn't want to risk denting the flimsy sheetmetal).

I think the angle of the pic really makes the reflection stand out, I took a pic of the side like gearbox and it didn't look so hot. I have no doubts that gearbox or Shroomster's rides would blow mine away finish-wise.

I'm surprised no one cracked on my kids "elmo" swim toy in the reflection
