Paint questions

I know i've seen someone say that they know about painting out there. My question is this...I heard that with flat paints there is no kind of protectant to coat it like with other paints and their clear coat. Is there any truth to that? I also heard that the flat paints have to be baked? Any truth to that? Thanks in advance.

People take these things too seriously!

I am in no way a paint expert but I'll try anyway.

Flat paints don't use clear coat because that adds gloss to the look negating the dull look.

You don't have to back the flat paint on, I think you are refering to powder coating which looks similar to paint.

to be simple,

no....you can clear coat anything, not sure the purpose of clearing black, but whatever look you like I guess.

and...

no...no don't have to bake on flats. With any paint it helps to do some baking via a heat lamp to help it harden, but you don't have to.

Color-rite makes the clear for the matte. Atleast one thats matched to my 919. I believe its like $50/pint. Not sure of local distributors, but they do have a internet site that does list other apps, amounts, and ordering.

Damn that place is a rip off. If you have guns to shoot it with go to your local body shop and get the number for their paint rep. You'll get paint nice and cheap that way.
