It's 1/8" black acrylic that was glossy but I'm planning on adding a veneer to match the dashboard or may leave them sanded. Haven't fitted the finger grip pads yet to the doors or may go with your suggestion. Thanks for the reply.

Playing with paint color. Was matte black, now gray primer and tested a shade of blue. Too much gloss. Want a matte or satin version of this blue color or may go back to matte black.

It's Delft Blue.

I was hoping it would be darker, like a midnight blue. Since I don't have a paint booth, I'm staying with a matte or satin finish. I sprayed this under a plastic canopy. The first coat was not reduced so it orange peeled a bit. The second reduced coat laid down better but has too much gloss for me. I may stick with the matte black that I had or go with a satin black but it is going to be hot. Your car might have the shade of blue I'm looking for but finding someone to mix it in a matte or satin finish hasn't been too easy unless a matte or satin clear coat is sprayed over the gloss base coat.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes.....that looks a lot like what I'm looking for. I'll get a pint mixed up and spray the door for a good comparison. Thanks!!

Well.....maybe not Royal Blue. It's a dark green.

Depending on your paint formula, you can add Matting Agents to control the amount of gloss. Have used it in 2K paints, but not sure if something similar is available for Acrylics? A 50:50 mix gave me a nice satin sheen for my bike paint jobs.

I've been getting my matte and satin urethane paints from Eastwood primarily black. If I can find a solid dark blue, not metallic, that can be mixed matte or satin, I would probably go with the dark blue vs black. Looks like going back to black is where I'm heading but maybe a satin this time. Thanks for the info and reply!

Raw door panel with upper door trim and finger grip pull. Think the upper trim panel needs to move forward a bit.

I'm not a paint guy at all, but was wondering what would happen if the same brands and type of paint was mixed. Could a shade of blue that you liked but too light be mixed with an appropriate amount of flat black to get what you are after? - Pete
