Flat Automotive Paint

Ditch the modern gloss and enjoy a throwback style with flat car paint from Eastwood. While shiny paint has been around for nearly a century, some people still prefer a matte finish. In fact, even though flat paint is considered "dull", it actually can help a car stand out when everyone else is trying to ramp up the shine. Several modern car manufacturers, including Mercedes-Benz and BMW, still offer cars with OEM flat paints — and you can do the same to your custom vehicle or restoration by shopping at the DIY leader.

Matte Car Paint Colors and Clears

We've put together a few options for painters who want to go flat in a good way. Eastwood flat black car paint is a single-stage urethane that quickly gives cars and trucks a show-worthy "rat rod" look. Dead Rat flat black auto paint has zero gloss in a durable, easily sprayable formula. If you want just a little bit of sheen, go with Rat Rod Satin Black single-stage paint. This has about 20-25% gloss compared to the 70-90% gloss of most modern finishes.

Alternatively, you can turn any Eastwood base coat into a flat paint by using matte clears as a topcoat. This type of coating works differently than normal gloss clears. Instead of filling and leveling the paint underneath — which is part of what creates a shine — matte clear coat adds small dimples that stop the paint from reflecting light. We offer Rat Road Matte Clear as a regular spray and in our 2K AeroSpray™ line of aerosol paints. Either solution quickly creates flat red, blue or gray car paint that's protected against the elements.
