From the sources that I have delt with they say if you buff a flat clear it will shine. But I have yet to try to buff flat clear

If you dont mind me stepping in here Brian. . . You absolutely CANNOT buff flat clear. This is the problem with the new trend of "flat" bikes. Absolutely ANYTHING that rubs your paint, whether it be your pantleg, your seat, a cable.. anything.. will start to bring out patches of shine on your finish. If you want your bike to stay flat, you must realize that you will have to sand and reclear it with flattened clear on a regular basis. Anyone that tells you any different is not doing you any favors.

It has to stay there. Remember back in the ol school days folks shot there stuff flat black and that was it. If you want it slick and flat you may want to go with the Billy Lane look. They took the Camel bike and sanded with like 2000 grit where they wanted to flat look. It's nice and smooth. Good luck!

Question

What is the best type of paint for a custom paint job with flames and airbrushing. I want it gleaming but durable?

Well to each his on basically. I use House of Kolor base and clear. From time to time I use Dupont colors and clear. Before I crossed the fence I sold automotive paint for 9 years. There are a lot of good paints out there. HOK specializes in Custom colors/finishes. If not HOK most products are good: PPG, Speis hecker, Standox ect.

Urethane primers, basecoat, clears. That's the only way to go.
