if it is a full urethane and you don't have baking facilities where your painting (even if you do it takes forever to cure)...depending on temperature it will take a week to air cure....(I recently used urethane satin black on a model T frame...it stayed shiny for about 5 to 6 days before it started to get dull and attain the finish I wanted...I expected this and told the customer to be patient before I painted the frame...today it looks fine).

If your not having luck with base and flattening agent in the clear and your using Dupont, in the future perhaps try their Acrylic Urethane, if memory serves me correctly, they do have a prepackaged flat, semi, and satin finish in black for these colors...it should air dry faster and give you the finish your looking for.

hope this helps
