I know it's been covered before, and I have not found it. I did a Search for it with a lot of different results. I usually use krylon BBQ black for my semi gloss. It did really well until they stopped carrying it. I switched to krylons semigloss black. I use it one time with excellent results. I use it again and it comes out watery after a good shaking. Are there any other cheap semi gloss black paints that I could use?

I like using Krylon, I've had good luck with that brand of paint. I like that its not too thick and gives excellent coverage. I've never had a problem with it being too thin. Really for the price (I buy mine at Wallyworld) it is one of the cheapest and best spray paints out there.

I use the Walmart gloss black in the blue cans, it says gloss but it has a nice satiny sheen. It doesn't cover the best and takes a few coats but it still does better than Krylon for me, it always crazes or wrinkles on me.

I've considered the rust but wasn't sure about it. Because I compared their high heat to krylons high heat and there was no comparison.

I like the BBQ black also. Used to be everywhere and now the only place that carries it is O'reilly's. I started to stock pile it just incase they stop selling it too.

I use the krylon flat black at hobby lobby  in the short cans, it always dries to a semi gloss or satin every time. l have used it for years and the 40 percent coupon helps. Krylon works great for models...

I will have to check that Walmart can out, it's cheap enough. Second one I will try is that Krylon. One reason I like most krylons is that they come out smooth.

I'm pretty picky about the semi-gloss blacks and so far I've been happiest with the Rustoleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2x - but I decant it. Out of the can it's to much too soon. Has like a fire hose nozzle and obliterates instantly. ;)  Out of the airbrush it's very good and has a nice semi-gloss. I mix it with lacquer thinner - that may help. YMMV

Lowes carries Valspar in satins, I have not used the black but have used the red for 60's - 70's era headers and it works great.

I use Krylon 1613 (Satin Black) which is really close to the right sheen for fenderwells, firewalls etc.
