Multiple Project Weekend (sealing her up for winter)

Baught a hardtop seal kit for my wrangler off quadratec.com that i plan on installing along with preping and spray painting my hardtop. I want a flat black paint, i was just curious if anyone had a particular or prefered paint. Also, iv read some posts on prep work and some people say to use a taft clothe and some dont because it leaves a residue? not sure which is accurate, what would wrangler forum do?

Flat black paint, IMO, is harder to clean than something with a smoother finish

So youd think a semi gloss or semi flat would do the trick? thanks for the advice!

Yes, IMO, a better choice. For a better perspective on keeping flat black clean think back to the flat black chalk boards they had in school.
