Found this "done well" flat blacker on the web. Looks like a matte clear coat too.

Could probably use another couple of clear coats but all & all- "Friggin Ahsum".

Looks like little dent on the door Sad . Those wheels do look like "peeling" cragars that someone painted the centers. Looks cool on a small budget Thumbs up

I drove my now red one around for a year working out all the bugs before body work in just ppg's Dp90 Epoxy black. It was nice that you did not have to worry about scratches. I used grey epoxy first after meda blasting it then black over that so when body work time came I knew when to stop sanding when I hit the grey.

Flat Black Is Beautiful afro Just very hard to do... cherry

Por15 makes a few good topcoats also, going to try a black as a base & see what it looks like on the roof. If I ever get to body work...LOL

I like that and I love those 73 tail lights. I almost wish mine had those instead of the 74, but I like th e74 too. 74 and 74 are my favs.

Maybe, but look around the center cap you can see chrome under the grey.

I totally agree that those are budget quicky painted and probably won't last long as the chrome is pealing

So I picked it apart here for flaws. I think that door ding is a bad paint over lap, same thing on the hood if you look close. The L rear Qtr looks like a painted over bond-o patch also.


All this will show up if you use the Krylon brand flat black, which I think was used on this car. Their tech services told me that it's dry in 10 minutes and you have to apply any multiple layer-coat before the previous coat fully drys to the touch or it'll bubble & peel. They don't refer to this paint as either enamel or lacquer. If you save the full size pic & open with the photo gallery, you can really see it.Good thing there are other brands out there.

I used it as a base coat on one of my small parts & it worked good, with a wet on wet using Duplicolor flat black as the top coat & Duplicolor clear "matte" in a can. I don't think I'd try the Krylon on an entire car though, not enough time for the big stuff.
