my other one was satin, too. this one is metallic though, so its even less satin and more towards the gloss side. it looks fantastic and i think adds a lot more of a dynamic in the sunlight than a straight gloss.
the owner of the shop is a good dude.. he slashed his prices to keep his guys employed. he's making no profit, but wants to continue to pay his guys, so he foregoes his monies to keep their paychecks going.
