Yes, I've used that HotHues black. I liked it alot! It lays down like butter, and has a nice even semi-gloss. I don't consider it to be completely matte, it has just the slightest bit of sheen to it. As for advise on applying it, don't be scared of it. Keep it clean, because you can't color sand and buff it. Put it on nice and wet, but don't run it. Maybe you should try a test panel to get accustomed to spraying it. It is a very good product, so I'm sure you'll be thrilled with the out come.

Good Luck! :thumbup:

I was talking with Jon Barrett the other day, he has a similar look on his well-traveled 40 Ford which he painted in the driveway. If I remember correctly, he said he used a flat black from Tractors Supply, $20/gallon! I'll try to call him tomorrow and I'll check on it for you. Bill :)
