What's Your Favorite Satin/Semi Gloss Clearcoat Product?

Trying to settle on a repeatable less-than-high-gloss clear coat for the interior of my '67. What brands are you all using and happy with?

I cannot say enough good about Barry and SPI. His customer support is awesome. Products even better.

Re: What's Your Favorite Satin/Semi Gloss Clearcoat Product?

This was shot with SPI Universal clear and their flattening agent. Mix ratio was 2 quarts clear, two quarts activator, and one quart flattening agent.








I shot my '63 VW with Universal clear and 7-8 % flattening agent added in.






You can see the difference between when it was wet at 100% gloss and after it dried to a slightly hazy shine.






Another one shot with SPI Universal and 7-8%.
