Is this what you used?

Default Abrasive at all?

If you rub some of that polish between your fingers or latex gloves etc - do you feel any abrasive qualities?

Nice photos of the sky... On the serious side it's hard to see the true color without a color calibrated monitor which most people don't have. I have one for photo editing on my desktop computer but the laptop that I'm using at the moment shows your color as a brownish olive green and not black. Later on I'll look at the photos on my calibrated monitor to see what you have.

Anyone else want to chime in and tell what color you're seeing on your computer?

I guess the key word is gold. I haven't seen that color in person before and after thinking about it maybe that's close to what I'm seeing on mine. You know how it is... they always look better in person.

Very true. Honestly these pictures do a very good job of showing the actual color, at least on my screen.

Ram calls it "Black Gold Pearlcoat", I was simply showing how it changes with sunlight and shadows. I think brownish, greenish, goldish, in the sun, but in the shadows it looks black. I haven't seen any other Rams this color (and I've been looking).
The SeaBowld Polish has less abrasives than Colgate or Pepsodent toothpastes.

I have the same color and get lots of compliments because at different angles it looks black,brown or green depending on the light and setting

You're seeing the right colours. The brighter it is outside the more intense the green (snow covered ground; sunny day). As the light diminishes the colour will get darker, to a deep chocolate brown then finally to black. The amazing difference is when you walk around the vehicle and see the colour changes from one side to the other (shade to sun).
