My bike is a satin black as will be my 48 Ford whenever it's done.

There is a big difference between satin and flat black as well as a number of different ways to achieve the look.

Hot Rod Flatz, John Deere Blitz Black, and various different primers are a good looking flat black.

If you want a satin finish you can either use a standard black basecoat with PPG Flex'd N Flat clear over the top or go with another single stage product with a flattening agent mixed in. There are tons of different shades of the satin and flat blacks so find one you really like before shelling out the money and read up on the durability of them.

Also be cautious.....flat black is hard to keep clean and I believe both flat and satin will gloss up if you attempt to polish them. So basically how it sets out of the gun is how it's going to look. I've had a lot of luck keeping my satin black looking good by keeping a lot of wax on it. Any dirt wipes right off and it helps give it that satin sheen I like.

Like I said I've done a lot of research on the different options and looked at a lot of them in person as well. The PPG black base with Flex'd N Flat clear is great and durable. For my truck however I'm gonna go with a single stage paint because of all the lettering and so forth I plan for the doors. I don't want to have to wait that long to clear my basecoat. I'm planning to use Standox Opel Rallye Black. It has a great sheen to it especially when it's waxed.....but nowhere near glossy.

FWIW I think any Camaro I've ever seen in flat/satin just looks unfinished. Rat Rod guys like that look. I'm not sure how well Camaros take to that look. May hurt resale as well. Just thoughts, I support people doing whatever they want!

What generation F-body were you looking at painting satin? I don't think it looks right on a 3rd or 4th gen, but 1st or 2nd I've seen it, and it doesnt look out of place

hardcorez28, thanks for all the info. I will investigate more.
knipps, that first t/a looks like a stealth fighter. I love it.
BonzoHansen, I plan on keeping this Camaro for good, so resale value is not a problem. Thanks for the support though.
91chevywt, I have a 1970 Camaro RS.

This is my 4th Camaro in the last 20 years and I've done the shiney paint route 3 times before. I think it's time for something differant.
I have also blacked out all the chrome. So I would like to continue with that theme. I will post pictures once the weather gets nicer and the car comes out of hiding.
Thanks for all the posts

Paul gave some good advice any sating or flat color will indeed gloss if you attempt to polish it. So needless to say after a year or 2 it will be full of swirls. The other option your have is having your car wrapped. I'm not sure what it costs but I saw it on a friend of a clients F430 and it looked pretty damn good.

some cars look good in satin, some don't, it really depends on what else is on the car to help set off the satin

^^^ What he said. Im not a fan of cars that look primed and unfinished which some satin cars do. For example the 69 rs ss pictured above is satin but looks great because it looks finished with all the chrome and badges. while the 2nd gen just looks cheap IMO Just my .02...

Ok, i'll also mention that on both cars, the paint that was on it looked like a deep fried dog PooP, AND the clear was peeling, so bought $14 worth of primer and had an excuse to host a car club meet/bbq lol
