I ve just bought a Planet x sl frame and forks in pristine condition and was planning on spraying it ( i have a spraybooth at work :wink: ) if i go with a matt am i right in thinking i dont need to clear coat after painting.

    If you used clearcoat, you wouldn't have a matt frame anymore.
    You'd have a shiny frame!

    You can get a matt clear coat though or you have to mix a flatting agent into the clearcoat
