auto paint supply store. easiest way is a single stage flat black acrylic enamel. just spray 2-3 medium wet coats and you're done. of course you have to have all the proper tools and supplies and know the proper method for prep. you're looking at probably around 200-300 for materials alone, more or less depending on what kinda prep work and any body work needs to be done.

the worst part about flat black is that you can't buff it out afterwards, so you have to try as hard as possible to get a trash-free job. and sometimes if you're not careful and steady and can come out looking "streaky".

you can also use a flattening clear, but if you lack experience a single-stage will probably be cheaper and easier.

flat black is not easy, if you don't have experience, skills or equipment. Good luck on the job. Like they said, flat black and the clear if two stage or just single stage.

if you dont even know where to get this type of paint, im guessing you probably dont want to tackle this yourself, you say you want to do it right, so get someone who knows what they are talking about to do it otherwise suffer the outcome and your waste of money.

paint is not easy no matter what color or shade...

dude, rattle can it. krylon makes a flat and semi flat in a can. the label looks like diamond plate steel. i suggest you use this specific can. and can to can they match perfect as with other brands or even other krylons. use the diamond plate looking label. find it at any oreilys. if you mess it up you can sand and re spray. the only way to screw it up is runs or trash. i did my whole vw gti in rattle can. it kind of streaked but it has to be in direct sun light to see. but those are large panels and i was in a hurry. with smaller panels to paint you should be able to get it painted before it streaks. take the tank off and all plastic. lightly sand to remove the gloss or use a liquid deglosser. then paint. it's so cheap it dosent matter if you have to repaint every 2 years due to fade. but fade could happen no matter what with matte finish. it chalks.

I use a matte clear, you can get it from PPG or Dupont. House of Kolor is going to be a lot more expensive for the same thing.

Any automotive paint supplier can get you set up.

Single stage (enamel) is cheaper than the base/ clear, but the base clear is easier to apply.

Neither of which will yeild good results if you don't know what you're doing.

If you rattle can it, and want to paint it later with a professional job, it's going to cost you an arm and leg 'cause no painter is going to want to sand all that rattle can down for free- and it's ALL got to come off if you want to base/ clear or even single stage it later.
