Thank you for making this video. I'm 110% on the AMB w/ white top, grille and trying to decide on maybe wheels too. What game is this that you used to make these vids? Sorry if I missed that already. Thanks!
haha same. I’m set on AMB and have been for a couple months now. But I’d take a normal dark blue over some magical flip flop color. My concern being that it may feel kinda douchey after awhile like I have a custom two tone paint. I’m a dark blue car guy, but certainly not a custom chameleon paint car guy.First off thank you for the video. It helps.
But with that said... F that!! I JUST WANT A BLUE! I don't want some magical fairy dust color that changes from every angle, just Blue. See Exhibit A (below)
Not Ford, but my new 2019 Z71 in black was good quality with less orange peel than i see on most new stuff (and considerably less than what is on the Wrangler!!). I went ahead and clay barred it, washed it, wiped it down, and put two applications of ceramic coating on it.
The dirt and grime doesn't immediately fall off the rear bedside extensions behind the tires, but it does after a rain or a quick spray with a water hose.
IT's funny to see because I did not treat the chrome bumper on the rear, and just yesterday my wife pointed out the dirt on the bumper leading edge and the absence of it on the paint.
Regardless of fresh factory paint I would clay bar it at a minimum, paint correction as needed before any synthetic coating.
I can tell you from looking at units on the lot at Ford lately, I am very much impressed by the quality and clarity of the paint. I didn't see any flaws this past weekend, and looked at probably a dozen F150's in various colors.
The flat gray (Leadfoot) did have hard water spots on it that the other colors did not have, but that is more than likely a detailing issue and not a clear coat/color issue.
Not sure. I know the vehicles around here are transported by rail to a local yard (probably 10k vehicles there) and distributed from there to dealers. I haven't seen any adverse effects on anything because of it. The cars are all enclosed well during transport.Thanks for the great reply!
I put a ceramic coating on my Chevy SS when I got it (C quartz after wash, clay iron decontamination, and paint correction) and its AMAZING. WELL worth the time investment up front.
I think I will try the graphene this time.
Do you, or anybody, know how these are transported to various spots in the country (rail vs. trailered etc?). Just trying to find out if there will be a ton of iron contamination.
Nice vid show us the Cyber Orange? How it was created because far off it looks yellow as well like everyone thought until you walk close than it’s orange ?
I made this video to give everyone an idea about how Antimatter Blue will look in real life. Still photos will never give this color justice. (The video is an approximation rendered in a video game)
If you have ever seen Magma Red, Antimatter Blue is probably the blue version of that color.
Antimatter Blue is my color of choice. Forget build and Price, I am ready to order.

Yeah, dunno. Just has that look when I drive by. https://blogmedia.dealerfire.com/wp...8/2021-Ford-F-150-Color-Antimatter-Blue_o.jpgMaybe I'm wrong but I thought there weren't any AMB vehicles in the wild yet.
Likely Blue Jeans. Which would look close to that render.Yeah, dunno. Just has that look when I drive by. https://blogmedia.dealerfire.com/wp...8/2021-Ford-F-150-Color-Antimatter-Blue_o.jpg
The science is he used a video game to choose the colours that might look close to AMB. It's only to give an idea of what it might look at. He literally said it was an approximation.I don't understand the science here on how it is actually tied the render to what AMB will look like in real life. Did I miss where he grabbed the color from an AMB paint sample and used that as the base of his render? (I probably did :\)
It looks like the creator rendered a random blue (or purple-blue) base coat with a black top coat so it would look like a blue to black transition based on the light. But this is not necessarily anything like what AMB itself will look like.
I'm very skeptical that AMB will actually get that bright and saturated blue in full sun. (But i certainly wouldn't mind if it did!)
Right, but i think most people are taking it as this is what AMB will actually look like based on the post's title and people's responses so far.The science is he used a video game to choose the colours that might look close to AMB.

Nothing , Dark paints matter.What's wrong with dark? I even said in the video it's going to be dark, and looks black most of the time. "Black edged in blue".
