"Flat black paint color",
 
I know Everyone has Their Own opinions on the subject,but I "kind of" think it would be a cool looking color for a "bad looking" '32 Coupe.
I'll most likely go with gloss black,but it's just a thought.
Anybody with some pictures might help.
Thanks

Prime it with black SPI epoxy and go drive it until the thought of painting comes to you..

Shooting flat topcoat has been done since day one. Colors as well as primer colors, and just primer, too- although this won't last unless it's something like an epoxy primer as mentioned above. Not a place for lacquer primer, in other words.

BTW, painting in flat was known as "suede".

The '31 has been on for about 4 years, and the '36 Chev. has been on 2 yrs. Very easy clean up, that is what I like about it, I get tired of waxing & clean up for Car Shows. Besides that, my Model A was picked at Cruise In, as owners choice, against some pretty nice cars. I was shocked, as I don't care about awards, been there, done that.

You don't have to go out and spend a bundle on paint to find out how it looks, just head on down to your local John Deere dealer and order a gallon of Blitz Black, it cost all of $28.00 and it last .

Sure like the way it sits. I have a friend that likes customs, but is about 15 years younger than I am, and the only way he thinks they should look is with wide whites, and no hub caps. If he gets a car with fender skirts, he says he throws them away. This is they were done in Old School, your car is awesome. :drool:

This is the way its going to stay. If it had wide whites and all the other stuff it would look like every other custom. The name of the car is UNDERTAKER. You can't call it that if its to pretty. I like the all black look.
