    Where can I get some flat paint?

    I'm getting ready to....actually I'm getting ready to get ready to paint my TJ. I'm looking for a some flat black and brown and white but I can't find anybody willing to make some. The brown is going to be a custom but I would take anything at this point. The only place I could find near Barrie won't make flat and they want 80 bucks a quart for colour that isn't exactly what I want. I don't care if it's spray cans or by the quart I'm just looking for a half decent flat paint that for a half decent price. This search has been long so any help would be apprecuated

    Napa and crappy tire sell duplicolor for $25 a can its a laquer... Buddy used it on his stock car and it turned out pretty good... I believe, it will remain flat unless you clear coat it... I am planning on going this route, if you do make sure u post the results!

    Flattening agent is kinda $.

    Krylon is only in gallons in the US.

    I was trying hard and gave up on the cheap. Almost all places can't custom mix a flat cheap paint unless ouo go for a basecoat laquer without clear but my guys told me it would work but only last as long as my jeep build ideas (they know me too well)

    Thanks for all the input fellas. I was trying to stay away from the spray bombs but it looks as if that is what I'm going to have to do. I wanted to do single stage but it takes a day and a half before you can apply the next coat so base coat was really my only option so I tried Paint Circuit and despite them saying they can match any colour I was amazed at how limited the options were and when I mentione flat the two guys heads almost exploded. The big problem is access to the gear I could get a booth but if I use poly it will take to long and too $$$$ to keep the booth. I guess I'll use the shortcut and see how it goes. I checked out Willy Acres like Craven said and waiting to here (those guys got some impressive stuff). Anyway thanks again for the info and I'm just waiting for the 3 feet of snow to melt to start. Any input on sealer or top coat over Krylon/Tremclad?

    I had CTC mix me some tremclad, worked well. After driving it for a season I had second thoughts about the colour, must have been drunk when I came up with it lol. So I changed again, this year I used Krylon spray bombs, ULTRA FLAT. Then even though my jeep should never see wax, yes I waxed my new paint job, but that was just to stop the powdering of the paint.
    WARNING! I am about to do something really fawking STUPID!!!!!!

    You could probably get all the flat stuff at Color Your World in newmarket....(not sure if there is one in barrie). They are pretty good with matching s as they can do a wide variety of stuff.

    Good Luck
