Clear coat for flat black paint job?
I wanna go flat black on my V Star Custom and have spoken to a few body shops here in Montreal about the options. Seems like there are a couple of different schools of thought on what paint to use and whether or not to use a clearcoat on top...
I would obviously use a satin clear coat to keep the black as flat as possible, but the guy I spoke to about doing this (he was a true, old-school gent) did not recommend this as the clear coat would, over time, damage the flat black paint.
But I've also heard the opposite - that there are good paints and good clear coats that work just fine.
What gives flat black fans?
