    About Eastwood Dead Rat Flat Black Kits

    Eastwood's all-new Dead Rat Flat Black is the only paint that has a near-zero gloss level! Sure, some like to "drive her in primer", or opt for a quick "rattle-can" paint job, but this activated, single-step acrylic urethane Rat Rod car paint is a smarter and much longer-lasting choice! Mix 3:1 with activator; no further reduction required.

    Due to regulations pertaining to recycling, we are unable to ship this product to Alberta, Canada.


    Choose from the following:
    51075ZP is the Rat Rod Gray Single-Stage Urethane Topcoat, Gallon, with 32-oz. Activator; enough to coat the outside of most cars
    51076ZP is the Rat Rod Gray Single-Stage Urethane Topcoat, 1-quart can, with 8-oz. Activator


    Clean surfaces of all contaminants. Abrade surface to be painted with a minimum of 320-grit sandpaper, working up to a 600-grit for maximum adhesion. Re-clean surface. After shaking paint, mix 3 parts paint with 1 part activator. Use caution mixing materials as paint may begin to gel after 2 hours at 70°F. HVLP gun setting: 8-10 PSI, with a 1.4mm-1.8mm tip. This color is formulated to give complete coverage in 2-3 coats. Allow 10 minutes flash time between coats; should be tack-free in 45-60 minutes, with full cure in 18 hours.

    (Q) How much paint do I need?
    (A) Typically one gallon per car. If you are also painting jambs, under the hood, or the trunk, use 2 gallons. For large cars and pickup trucks, use 2 gallons. Number of coats, prep and application methods will affect the amount of paint required.


    Always wear proper eye, skin and respiratory protection. Always paint in a well-ventilated area away from sparks and open flame. Consult MSDS and product data sheets for proper safety precautions.

    Review by pig nuckle
    went with the dead rat flat..shot it myself. Having NEVER painted a car before,and concidering I used a quick plastic sheet booth,it came out pretty good..little rough,probably shot a little to much out of the gun but a quick rub down with 2000 grit took care of that..not bad for my first...

    Maybe I am blind but there was no info on nozzle size but I shot it with a 1.8 in my Iwata primer gun, it was a little heavy but did not need any additional reduction. Covered well and looks really good.

    Just finished painting my 55 Dodge pick-up with this stuff (my first paint job ever). This was so easy to use even a first timer can do a great paint job. Cant wait to do another one.

    my buddy Is a professional painter, and was only recommending PPG, but I didn't like our local dealer, so I went online and found this, he had never heard of it, I took a shot and, he absolutely loved it! went on and dried really hard, perfect for my Honda Shadow Phantom gas tank(didn't like the glossy black) did the fenders/trim too! THANKS EASTWOOD!
