semi- gloss bc/cc

I used rattle can paint on my last project for the engine compartment(eastwood's under hood black). Like most rattle can paint it looked great......for about two days. What about a black semi-gloss bc/cc? Is there such a thing? Would it give a soft factory type finish? Any other suggestions? This car is to be driven daily and I need something more durable than one can get from a can.

A lot of restorers use black epoxy inside the engine compartment
and with a good wet coat or a shot of a slow grade urethane reducer it will match some factory OEM's. I am doing this on my judge as it matches factory.
You can base and add flattening agent in clear to get the % of gloss you want, this will take some experimenting on your part
to figure out how much flattening to add.
Either the epoxy or the BC/CC is going to give you very good protection.

Its my first love.
I have never meant an old car I did not like.
Kinda lucky as wife is worse than I am.
But with her it must be fast or she don't like it.
The judge is a 69 ram air 1V and have let her drive it a little
but told her when I'm done restoring this car will never be driven again. She did not like that! Shes still pissed at me really!
Looks like we going to be lighter on cars next week as just sold the 22 mustangs to a guy today and deal will be done next week.
So I get to start replacing-thats the fun part for me.

I usually go with a single stage black and add flattening agent to get the desired flattness. but i also learned that u usually spend more on the flattening agent then the paint and catylist combined. I used an Omni single stage not too long ago with flattening agent. it will last a long time and looks great.
