    I got into a discussion this weekend with some "old school" rodders. I was under the impression alot of the guys just shot DP90 and we done.

    These guys went with a basecoat black and flat clear.

    Can't you just go with a single stage?

    And yes, I do understand the DP90 is just a primer where as these guys had paint.

    I'll be nice... You might want to do a search... And refrain from using the words "rat rod".
    Either that or put on a helmet and flack jacket.

    flattened single stage. at least save some money. I think flat black is played out. Way played out. give it a little color.

    If I were going to paint flat black, I'd just do the single stage.

    i have used a product from sem called hotrod black. its a single stage paint that dries with a semi gloss finish. it works real well and is easy to use. the only problem is they only offer a quart kit, which include activator and reducer. so to do a whole car you need at least 4 quarts. depending on the size...but it does the job and stands up to the elements.

    Try Eastwood Co. (sorry guys) "Rat Rod Black" It's single stage, comes in kit or quarts (kit has 3qts paint, 1 qt hardener). I got the kit pus qt of reducer (recommended) for about $100 to my door. Won't fade or stain like primers, sprays real easy.

    That's what is on my F-100...looked great for about six months, then went to hell.

    We did my roadster with a product called GM chassis black. Came out a nice satin sheen. Used to buy it at GM dealerships parts stores. Came in gallons and you poured it straight into the gun. No reducers came ready to shoot, but I don't know if it's still available.
    My 55 was done with a black base coat and a satin clear, looked really good but I didn't own the car long enough to know how it held up. The roadster was on the road for about 4 years and still looked good after a lot of road miles. Gary
