cobalt327 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.

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 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.

I have painted hundreds of bikes. My first worry would be that gasoline will attack the lacquer much easier than a urethane with hardener.

I've used both, and the urethane is much more permanent. I like to do things one time, and never have to worry about it again.

dumbasastump the last time i used lacquer i was painting my dinosaur while listening to an 8 track tape

da34guy Shot the SPI Flat black @ the 4 to 1 mix ratio.

Lays down like silk and is bullet proof.
Best on the market IMO
Won't ever use a flattened clear again.

cutthroatkid I got ya I thought the picture wasn't showing up.I was hoping the single stage would lay like what I'm spraying now.

I wasn't knocking your work. I am only saying that flat SS colors are very delicate and damage easy. A flattened clear over a basecoat gives you the same basic look but with a lot more durability. Not as much as regular high gloss clear coat, anything flattened will be more temperamental but the flattened clear is a lot more durable than flattened SS.

MARTINSR Bc/cc with a satin clear is the ONLY way I would do an exterior flat color.

nothing will lay as good as that stuff but that's cause nothing's there. I tell you though, it will lay good with a decent gun and tip.
