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)

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.

I would recommend using a flattening agent and still spraying clear coat over the top. this way the clear coat will protect the paint from UV rays and give it a long lasting life and it will still look flat with the flattening agent mixed in the clear.

Do it the correct way or it's gonna look like crap. shortcuts and cheap products = fail.
