    Sikkens makes a real nice semi gloss "Ralley Black". It is a urethane. I used to use a flattening agent, mixed into acrylic enamel made by Dupont. Most make a semigloss black now. Ask for help on mixing and application!!!!!

    Might take a look at John Deere 'Blitz Black'. Hotrodders.com has a long running thread on it, just search there for Blitz Black. Has just the right satin look to it.

    PPG makes a sealer, DP series and it comes in several different colors, black white, red, green. It is a very good epoxy sealer and sticks to about everything and holds up. I painted a duck hunting boat with it over 10 years ago right over scuffed aluminum and it is still there. It's been out side since the day it was painted. the dull satin finish may be what your looking for. Great for a Rat Rod. It would cut cost too by being a one stage paint job. It is user friendly too. If you put any wax or polish flat paints, they gain gloss, so you want a wash and go finish.
    The older I get the less i know for sure Dennis
