    I haven't seen anything else with a low or no gloss.

    I was thinking that you meant putting it on with a chrome basecoat...

    It would be nice to get something that is ready to shoot without having to mix the gloss killer, it would help in the consistency.

    The dark brass is a candy top coat. Why would you have two stages?

    They put cosmoline on jap scrap when they ship it to the US because of the ocean salt. On a quiet day you can hear a Toyota rust....

    Is there anything closer in a RAL color or something to keep from doing a 2 stage process?..

    Cosmolene is a protectant against rust used on automotive parts, machine shop tooling and equipment that will be stored for a unknown or indefinite period of time. Fresh it is almost like a grease. As it ages and dries out, it gets gummy and then hard. It has to be cleaned off with a solvent before the item coated can be used.

    I have someone that does restorations and wants to be able to have the same coloring as cosmoline, without the mess.

    Ideas?

    Can you add something to get the candy topcoat a true flat finish ??
