I was going to post a question about the Hot Rod Flatz too until I saw your post. I finally went ahead and bought a gallon "kit" of Hot Rod Flatz flat black the other day from E-bay. Normally I buy most of my paint material from www.autobodydepot.net so I can get free shipping with my $250 orders but this time all I needed was the flat black paint. They have an Ebay store so it made it EZ to buy..........

I built this '50's style Bobber and bought some Sikkens paint that was SUPPOSED TO BE flat black. After painting it I realized it was actually semi gloss and not "flat". This just wouldn't do........ So I used rattle cans and painted it flat black temporarily so I could go to Bike Week. Now I need to sand that crap off and paint it for real with the Hot Rod Flatz paint. I hope it comes out as well as I think it will. I have about $300 worth of material under the spray can flat black so at least it's got a good base.

Check out the pics of the Bobber. It's going to look good in the bed of my '47 International which will be done exactly the same so they both match.

Hot Rod Flatz

I bought some Sikkens paint to spray my '50's style Bobber with and found out too late that it was semi gloss and not "flat"........ Running late for Bike Week I sprayed the bike with rattle cans and went. With $300 worth of good primer and eurethane paint under the spray can flat black finish I wanted to re-do it so I bought some Hot Rod Flatz flat black. It should be here in a couple days. I'll let you know how it looks when I spray it.

Here's a few pics of the bike. It'll look killer in the bed of my '47 International pickup truck when I finish it. The truck will match the bike with flat black paint and yellow powder coated wheels and lots of ol' school pinstriping.

I'll be working on mine for years. Okay, to each his own!! Maybe instead of Hot Rod Flatz colors, people could just shoot their car in single-stage Urethane, then wet sand with 2000 grit, then skip the buffing. Same thing!!

Just giving you a hard time!

No problem. This is my first flat paint job. Most of the time I shoot kandys from HOK. I'm sure you'd like them better.........
