Another BF'er recently posted about reflective glass beads that you'd sprinkle onto wet clearcoat to do the same thing. It's the stuff that road crews use on pavement markings (and if they're sloppy like the ones here, you can see reflective powder scattered everywhere within a few feet of freshly painted markings).

Naturally I have a contrary viewpoint.

I like matte camo colors. That way they can't get a good bead on you.
