I'm looking for a gloss Black, non-metallic, and a brand other than the hobby brands. I've tried a couple Duplicolors but they seem to be metallic black. Does Duplicolor make a straight gloss black without metallic? What other brands might you suggest?

Thanks,
Doug

That is metallic based. I'm looking for black with no flakes whatsoever.

I use dupilcolor black primer then shot two part clear over it,you get even coverage with the primer and the clear brings out a real nice shine.Hope this helps.Sean

If you can find it locally, there's a paint brand called Spruce that has a very good gloss black. I get mine from a local PPG dealer. Lays down smooth, and will get a very high gloss without polishing.

"Universal Black" Duplicolor is opaque black with zero metallic. If you're getting the metallic it's because you're buying the wrong stuff.

P/N BUN0090 is "Universal METALLIC Black"

What you want is P/N BUN0100 "Universal Gloss Black"


Thanks Mark. I'll go shopping tomorrow!
Question about HOK....there website is overwhelming....is their paint urethane? lacquer? Im interesting in thier paint...but where would I buy it in small amounts? Are all their paints the same in regards to primer/basecoat requirements?

The best place to get it from is Black Gold in Arlington,TX. They carry both lacquers & urethanes. I use lacquers.

Prime like you would for any automotive or hot paint.
