Get the dupi-color kit for about $20 quart. You can get the hod rodd black paint at some shops for a descent price.
You can also use a matte clear coat the get that look you want but that will cost extra because you paint it twice.

The hodrod black will cost around $60 gallon but you have to buy activators (I think) which is $20 quart.

The dupli-color is a ready to paint out of the can system so saves you a little money and easy to use. I don't know if they make a satin or matte finish though.

I plan on painting my new tow rig a flat or satin so Ive done some home work, if you do it yourself make sure you either mix a batch to cover the whole truck or measure the amounts you use because you will see a difference if you mix your paint and dont use the exact same ratio, Also remember make sure you got everything setup right so you dont get any runs or bad paint stuff (fisheye and stuff like that) because you cant fix it once its done......

You can also try John Deere Blitz Black paint its supposed to be a really good paint .... probably what Im going to use and I think its fair price as well

The John Deer is Ok I have used it . (Takes a long time to dry) Had good luck with the industrial grade paint that my PPG supplier carries. Ak300 he puts the flattener in at the store so every time you use it it comes out the same. Also its cheep! 30.00 40.00 a Gal. Get it in an eggshell or between eggshell and flat not completely flat it comes out better. I've used it a lot! Just did my buds chopped top 84 Chevy P/U. I could post up some pics if ya want. The 300 has a hardener you can add to make it a bit tougher. Be careful how much you put in it will make it shinny! about 32 to 1 seems to work fine.

That would be great if you posted pictures. My friend used dupli color and it didn't turn out the way I want.
