"RatRod" Black 997

Being doing a little research regarding the RatRod black paint for my 928...I have a client who has an old Hudson in this black and he suggested it a long time ago...starting to look pretty cool.

I found this in my continuing search/due dilligence.

Nonsense on the hard to maintain bit...just use the modern flattening agents when painting so you'll have a clear coat mixed in to prevent the talcing and balling up you'd get from a primer paint...PPG makes the stuff needed.

Just have a good shop do the body prep and paint - it will show ANY imperfection.

Below is my Blackbird...

With the increasing popularity of the "matte finish" on cars now, you might even be able to find it in a factory pack of the correct color and degree of flat finish that is desired. If you can get it in a factory pack, it would be a lot less expensive, to get a quality paint finish for it. Good luck!! Tony.

If you'd like a single stage paint instead of b/c you can try PPG #9295 in DCC (Concept, acrylic urethane).
The formula "Low Gloss Black" already has a large quantity of matt base to give it the satin sheen of a late 60's & early 70's Ford Mustang hood...
Add more of the matt base to your "flatness" taste.

SEM also makes a new "Hot Rod Black" single stage product made specifically for your stealth application.
