Eastwood Rat Rod Matte Clear Quart Kit

Product Overview:


Eastwood's premium Rat Rod Matte Clear Single-Stage Acrylic Urethane Topcoat provides exceptional long-lasting beauty and durability.

  • 1-quart Rat Rod Matte Clear Automotive Paint
  • 8-fl.-oz. Activator required
  • Catalyzed urethane for unsurpassed durability
  • Highly resistant to UV rays, chemicals, chips

Some project rods just won't look finished until you've put on that distinctive, matte car paint finish. Our paint is the only way to go! This premium 2-component topcoat system is blended with top-quality raw materials and advanced composition coatings technology. Superior to acrylic, alkyd and lacquer coatings. Eastwood's single-stage urethane paints hold their gloss longer and won't yellow.

Sure, some like to "drive her in primer", or opt for a quick "rattle-can" paint job, but this activated, single-step acrylic urethane car paint is a smarter and much longer-lasting choice! Mix 3:1 with activator; no further reduction required.

Use this kit with Eastwood's premium single-stage urethane paints or other manufacturer's base-coat systems. May even be used over factory finishes in good condition. Rat Rod Matte Clear is also ideal for interior parts, underhood components, hobbies and crafts.

Not for sale or use in California. Eastwood Paints are formulated to meet National Rule VOC regulations; check with your local and state guidelines as some areas may have stricter regulations than others.Two medium coats will achieve a 10-15% gloss level.

Other finish options include applying over Eastwood's 21855ZP Satin Black to produce a 0% gloss. May also be mixed with EW European Urethane Clears to achieve a variety of gloss levels.


(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.

Application Tips

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: 28-32 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.
