SEM Hot Rod Black question

Hello I have started painting my motorcycle and decided to go with SEM Hot Rod Black. Itís coming no out nice but itís a little shinier than I was going for. I was going for more the black denim look and this has a little more sheen than I expected.

Question can I knock it down a little with a wet sand after it cures and the. Spray SEM Hot Rod Matte Clear over it?

If so what grit would I use to knock it down?

Thanks
Joe

800-1000g wet sanding would be fine for clear to stick. I would let that single stage sit a few days and do any outgassing it's going to do and tighten up before putting the clear on.

I agree with you!

You might not gain anything by going through these extra steps. You need to know exactly how much sheen both of these products have otherwise you may end up further from where you want to be.
