      what prep did you do to the frame?
      did you use 2 pak?
      someone said to use clear over base black and then use an additive to turn the clear matt

          Paint you can touch up if you scratch it, powdercoat will need to be re-done completely.

              Powdercoat is a tuff coating - lasts well on rims

                you can get specialized flat clear,[its not cheap] the additive wont always turn the clear flat.

                yes, dubs has it on his

                ps, make sure you prep properly and use an acid etch first if you are going diy.
