    So I don't know if you would just wash it. Or if you apply wax will it make it shiny as well. I just don't know.

    If anyone has experience, your help would be appreciated.
    they make a "flat" clear coat designed just for such paint jobs... its come a long ways from just using a black primer

    I dont know if you guys have owned a flat paint DD but my truck was horrible. You have to wash the bastard with dawn all the damn time. Least you dont have to wax it.

    if you are really interested, some company makes flattenrer for the clear coat. mix in a little with the clear, and depending on how much you put, it will be gloss, satin, or matte finish.


    I am doing the center of my t/a bumper with the CETA mod. satin black.

    Flat Black is gonna take sum ballz, constant pounding of the question "why"
    personally FB looks cool on cars but theres the consequences of that turd ball always asking once again "why", Go for it!!!!! change is a good thing.

    It looks like the voting is almost 3 - 1 against it, but seems there is a little love out there for it. Like doberman says, it will take some balls and you will do a lot of explaining.

    Wow I didn’t think I would like flat black on that gen Bird but it looks awesome. It really brings out the lines of the car since there’s hardly any light reflection at all. It gives me the impression that it’s got a badass motor inside, idk why lol.

    Looks kinda like a very dark shade of primer to me. Reverse it might look good.
