    I got all the stuff for my engine cover from Halfrauds. If you're just after normal colours they're OK. They do big cans of clear too.

    Any clear laquer will be flat, you just need to make sure you do decent prep and apply it properly.

    ohright. heard from an ebook that there was two types of laquer, glossy and flat.

    this what im planning on doing, not sure if it would work though. On the rear bumper spolier and front bumper spoiler (lip) not sure what there called, i wants to spray them matt black, so itll kinda look the same as it does atm but itll look more black, i was going to spray them as the same as my car but might get the colour a bit wrong and itll look odd.

    i thought thats just a different name for it lol..i saw it be called matte/flat black. and saw the word flat laquer needs to be used as itll protect the paint, but wont bring it up all glossy.

    You could try cleaning them with a PTFE based spray cleaner first.
