Default Flat Black?

Hey im looking into painting my truck flat black...
the truck is originally gold but i got side swiped so decided it was a good time to do a color change since half the truck needs to be painted anyway...

I was going to paint it gloss black but got to thinking i like the way the flat black looks but one i dont know how to do it myself or have it done or how to maintain it, if anyones has some good advise let me know!
Thanks
Tyler

Use HotRodFlatz from TCPGlobal.com. Its a single stage premixed flat base coat that has UV protection. It won't fade like primer and you can even get a semi-clear coat and UV protector that they say helps even more to spray on top. I hope this helps.
