Matte Black

Does any one know of a Matte Black paint that can be wet sanded to remove dust particles or other imperfections?

That will never be possible, since the minute you start sanding, you are changing the surface of the paint. That is where the matte texture is. On top of the color.

The best you can do is shoot enough to give you even color. If you get too much dust... sand it out with fine paper, and spray one more coat of paint over the whole thing.

Zero rust is a brand name, it's a single stage primer available from Raybuck among other places. I've never used it in a way that would test the makers claims but I know that it's way better than most single stage stuff. It's also cheap which makes it easy to try out I think

It takes a long time to really cure but it's sprayeable and can be thinned. Comes out of the gun nice. As for longevity I can't say, as my Stang bottom side hasn't met the elements yet. I definitely like how it sprays though.

Is it "Zero Rust" or "X-O Rust" ?

Just to be clear.
