Are you looking for a flat or satin finish?

I would imagine you could use a flattener in the clear to get the desired results. BUT, I'm not a painter, so maybe someone who is will post.

Before


Primer (red oxide Is this what your talking about?)


Paint


In my opinion those trucks look better ether wearing the stock faded paint or REAL REAL SHINEY nothing wrong with primer while its a work in progress though.

Thanks for the Responce

Thanks for the responce, Here is a Pic of a S10 that was stated as being painted in Hot Rod Red Flatz Paint, Really like the Look of it. Almost looks to be anodized to me, Really seem's to make it Pop.........

I have thought long & Hard about this Choice & decided on this Color Combo to have something that sticks out from the Norm........

Thanks Again, Rick

I Have been a Long time Lurker on the site & Have learned a Bunch from it, This is a Tough Choice & has Finally Prompted me to Post for advise..........

Looks like neon red to me but is kinda hard to tell from a web pic...Sometimes paint is called some custom color when it is something that is readily available..

Probably factory red with a flattening agent put into it.
