Did anyone go to the Import Alliance and see the car across from the garage under the tent next to the trailer that was next to the dyno. It may have been a Supra, anyways it had a flat black paint on it. I was just wondering if that's some special paint or just that, flat black.

You will have to spray the flat black and they make a special clear to spray over it. If it was just a normal flat black car itd dirty as hell all the time and fading.

yeah I don't want to do that. My car needs a respray but I don't want to spend $3-5K. I just really liked that flat black...yeah no primer for me

yea the paint job itself is just like any other paint - the color code is just a flat black tho .... like matt said ^, the clearcoat is whats different - its made to protect the paint like any other, but doesnt make it glossy like most clear coats do

very true statement right there but you can have as much flattening agent as you would like to make a little different effect and it really isn't any more expensive than a normal paint job but you want to make sure the person doing the body work is very good because a paint job like that will show any bad body work alot.
