Thanks, the black paint has the wonderful flakes in them that makes it stand out from the other black cars out there especially when it's freshly detailed!
Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
Nice looking Sport. Also very refreshing to see a post not about exhaust fumes or carbon monoxide gases.

Love it!!! It's an XLT, so it will never be a true beast, but the tune made driving a LOT more fun. Yet, it retains a level of civility that comes in handy for when the wife is with me.

Yup, those are glass flecks from one place in Japan that supplied Ford's paint supplier. Then after the earthquake a few years ago they became very hard to source so Ford decided Shadow Black was the new black with no glass fleck requirement.

It’s not letting me link my pic to imgur like last time. Don’t know what’s wrong. I’ll fix it when I get to my laptop.

@sawood711 - I fixed it for you. The "image" button in the toolbar makes it easy :)

There is if you click the link in his post.
There was no link when I looked as you can see in his quote included in my post. It was added later.:)
