Q: Can Musou Black Paint be used as an automotive paint?
A: The simple answer is No. Musou Black was never designed to be used as an automotive paint. This paint is fragile and the coating can easily be
scratched/peeled off. Top or clear coats may improve its durability however this will decrease Musou Black's darkness. If you would still like to paint a vehicle, we recommend to do it solely for
display purposes and not for long-term use.
Q: Can I apply a top or clear coat on top of Musou Black Paint?
A: Top or clear coats may improve Musou Black's durability, however this will decrease its "darkness" because light will reflect off of the top or clear coat. If you
would like to maximize Musou Black's darkness, then the Musou Black Paint coating needs to be the top layer.
Q: What can I do to improve Musou Black Paint's durability?
A: Applying a primer beforehand will slightly improve Musou Black Paint's adhesion, however the coating will still be fragile. We are currently researching methods
to improve the paint's durability without affecting its darkness. Once we find something, we will make an announcement.
Q: How do I clean the fabrics?
A: We recommend cleaning our fabrics with an adhesive lint-roller or by dry-cleaning. We do not recommend washing them as this will flatten the hair-like piles
on the surface of the fabrics which will make them more reflective.
Q: Do you ship to Brazil or Greece?
A: While we technically are able to do so, due to the importation laws of these three countries, shipments in the past were held by customs and imposed with
exorbitantly high fees for both parties. Therefore, these 2 countries are not available as shipping destinations on our online store. If this is acceptable and you would like to proceed
with an order, then please kindly send us an inquiry.
Q: Can I order Musou Black Paint and have it shipped to Mexico?
A: Due to Mexico's chemical importation laws we are unable to ship our Musou Black Paint to Mexico. However, we can can ship our fabric and foam products so if you
are interested in purchasing those then please kindly send us an inquiry.
Q: Do you ship to military addresses or PO boxes?
A: No, we are unable to do so.
Q: Can you lower values for customs?
A: No, we cannot do this for legal reasons.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept for bulk orders?
A: We accept bank transfers and PayPal. If bank transfer is preferred, then we will need to charge an additional 5000 JPY to cover bank transfer fees. However, if
you use a service called “Wise (formerly called TransferWise),” then we can drop the 5000 JPY fee. Comparing Wise and PayPal, Wise is cheaper for transfer fees.
