The black is created in house through basically a science class style set up to do black rhodium plating." -Buddy
Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor City agate, is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently over time allowing it to be cut and polished. It was formed from the buildup of layers of enamel paint over-sprayed on tracks were vehicles were hand spray-painted. These tracks carrying vehicles would be used daily causing the enamel paint to be overlapped and baked numerous times. This process of painting vehicles has sense been automated making Fordite quite rare.
