Is it the paint job or have they made the 10 a little sleeker?

I think the black trim I mentioned helps the "sleekness" factor.

I really like the look too. But I remember the "old days", when standard advice was to not paint composites dark colors, for fear of softening the room temperature cured epoxy. Anyone know if this is still true, or an OWT? Or even if the cabin top is a room-temperature-cured epoxy?
