Flat Black

I have always wanted to have my Balt Flat Black. And after going to the NY International auto show this past weekend It's official my car will soon be just that. I just wanted to know if there is anything to know about painting it flat black before doing it. Can I still wax it? ( Kinda pointless right)

I don't think you will be able to wax. It says right on the bottle I have that its not for Flat paint.

This is something I have been thinking about doing for sometime now. I think it would be very unique. If you do it please post up some pics.

Roll/ spray it down with Rustoleum.. Hell I'm doing that when I get my Fiero, a murdered out roll on job with a shitload of sanding and then some

And I went to the auto show on sat, IMO it SUCKED!! A lot less cars than when I went back in 05, and those tuner cars they had in the basement- not enough at all. 212 Motoring and another shop were the only 2 shops with rides on display.. Boo.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!! I know your being sarcastic, but there are DIY methods like the rustoleum methods that are proven. And remember, whatever painting it is... ITS ALL IN THE PREP!!! I can't stress that enough.

Then again the OP never specified if hes taking it to a shop or doing a DIY.
