Painting Satin Finish

Anyone paint a wrangler a satin finish? I like the look of something slightly brighter than primer and easier to touch up than gloss.

Any pictures?

Are you talking on the body or on the fenders/bumpers, door handles and such?

anything other than flat touches up like crap. ive been a paint professional for 11 years. its noticeable if you try to touch up because it heightens the gloss on the area you touch up making it noticeable. flat is the way to go if you want to be able to touch up unless you are going to paint a full section then you can use satin

How about just having it vinyl wrapped?

There is a flat/matt black TJ around my neigborhood that looks awesome. It has however been wrapped and the shiny black paint is still perfect underneath. Proper 3M or Avery Denison vinyl has several years warranty as well and is very tough.

Re-touching is very simple. Depending on the area, I use an airbrush that I use to paint my scale RC Tanks. I used 5 coats of satin black paint, and I still have about 40% of a Gallon paint can. That's the beauty of using a High Volume Low Pressure spray gun.

@ acrijos. Where did you get the paint? Who makes it? And last did you spray on a clear coat?

That satin black looks awesome! I saw the show "West Coast Customs" do a JK in a Satin black wrap with Orange lettering/logos that turned out cool too!
