If you had the paint done at, say 70%, you'd apply wax as usual. It might initially give it a bit of a sheen, but over time would remain constant. I chose the gloss because I can't stand the line that inevitably forms between the flat black and the gloss. It just collects wax and shows a white line. When I had my hood done, the entire hood was coated in two coats of clear. You can't feel the change from blue to black.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
