Default Flat MonoKote

I'm looking for a flat finish on a small area. Has anybody tried spraying dullcoat over MonoKote?

I'll do a test case but was wondering if anybody has already done this.

I've covered a couple of entire planes with flat, clear Lustercoat. I am pretty happy with the results. And unlike what most say, I didn't 'scuff' up the Monokote with steel wool or anything. Had it on one plane for over a year and it seems to hold up pretty well.

Cool. I didn't see any reason why it shouldn't be fine, I've just never painted over MonoKote.

I think I'll give it a whirl.

Thanks,
Dave

Monocote does make a flat black, OD, Gray, and tan. I am about to use the black on a P47.

Maybe I missed something here, but just thought I would interject.

Those 'flat' colors are a bit more difficult to work with as opposed to their regular covering....just a head's up....
