Make sure you do a test spray to verify the gloss and color before hosing the car. The jobber sometimes has trouble obtaining the right amount of flattener for the specific product, some products work better than others. An example is PPG's Concept singlestage which works very well with a flattener but the Global singlestage is a real bear to get right requiring a whole lot of flattener compared to most paints. Dupon't chroma-one is the same way, takes a whole lot of flattener to get it right. Another oprion is to use a basecoat color with satin clear over it. I agree- using paints instead of primer surfacers. Bob
