Here's a shot of the SPI right after 3 coats, walked outta the booth and the next moring it was @
a 50% low sheen.
Lookes like silk.
Did a test panel 3 day B4 and threw a lacquer thinner soaked rag on it for 15 minutes
and it didn't do anything to it.
This Spi is the best product on the market, and I've shot them all in my 45 years of painting.
Price is xlnt also.

Vary the reducer from 4:1 to 8:1 will change the sheen from satin to flat. A lot of users are liking the "flat" when shot at 6:1

Did I miss where on the vehicle this is going to be used?

IMHO, a satin or "semi-gloss" type finish is much preferred over straight flat or gloss black for underhood sheetmetal, firewall, accessories and brackets, etc.

On my Camaro underhood and A-arms, etc. I used enamel (Centari w/a flattener). IIRC GM is supposed to have used 60/40 in the muscle car years, but it looks a little too flat to me, we ended up about 75/25. This shot excellent- I'm a rank amateur and even I couldn't screw this up.

In looking around the interweb, SPI gets very high reviews. Combine that w/the assistance you can get here, that would be my choice I do believe.
