why clear coat it if you are painting it flat black?

i dont know thats what im wondering? ive never painted in flat black so i dont know if clear coat protects it or just makes it shiny.

Yeah no clear. I did mine at a body shop and they use a special dupont matte black paint with UV Coating already in the paint.

Re: Im feeling flat......black (blackoutjetta)

Re: Im feeling flat......black ([email protected])

thanks a lot Russ. *chanting* RUSS RUSS RUSS. thanks a lot for all this info but...
this grill has just been laying around so i decided to do something. when i get the money i will get a GT front and i will get it done in flat black (or what ever color) professionally. Also it had the dealer plate holes in it so theres another reason in to not spend a lot of money into it. Again thanks and i still want those black wheels with red lip.. but not to get off topic... when i get the GT front i will def. take it to a real shop. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
