Paint is Duplicolor low gloss black. I used my bench grinder to smooth out the nubs and scuffed the metal. 5 coats.

No can do on the nubs Steve. If they were ground off, the small v shape would widen out a bit and look worse. there is no material behind the nubs, so it would look similar.

Looks very "THUNDERBIRD" "SHELBY" or "CALIFORNIA SPECIAL-ish"

Nice JOB

I thought I'd hate it but it's not bad... not for my cat, but does look very sharp!

I miss the vertical lines. This is a look that could work if you shaved the chrome & anodized, added integrated, body color bumpers etc... I like that you tried something I never even considered before ... challenges the way I look at things.
