What is Hot Rod Black?
Hot Rod Black is name given to colors that are not a full gloss or maximum “shine” black. Hot Rod Black has a dull sheen that can vary depending on the product and how it is applied.
Which gloss sheen should I choose?
The sheen you choose really comes down to personal preference. In general the flatter sheens show less dirt and contaminants (low gloss finishes are very hard to polish out nibs) and hide less than perfect body work better while the glossier sheens like satin and semi will look darker and are generally easier to maintain.
Which activator and reducer should I choose?
Hot Rod Black goes on more evenly when applied wet and kept wet longer. Therefore, when painting larger areas above 75 degrees it is better to use slow activator and reducer. Medium or “Standard” can be used on smaller areas or for lower temps. Fast activator and reducer is not recommended on our Hot Rod Black products.
How much paint do I need?
The amount of paint depends on a lot of factors, but generally one of our 1 gallon kits will paint the outside and jambs on most vehicles. Large SUVs or large trucks where you are spraying inside the bed may need an additional quart kit (or two) but this is uncommon.
NOTE: If you can’t find a single quart size of the kit you’re looking at on our website, please contact us! We are adding quart-sized versions of many of our kits to our website, but it’s a time-consuming process.
How much is shipping, and how long will it take before I get my kit?
Shipping cost is based on order total. Orders over $400.00 will ship for free to the lower 48 states, while orders under $400 will ship for a flat fee (see table below).

Why are your products so much more affordable than big name brands?
Our unique sales and marketing strategy allows us to save substantial amounts of money by not hiring a national sales force to distribute our products. Furthermore, we do not have large marketing budgets based off exorbitant costs of race and show sponsorships.
How good is your product?
We conduct advanced testing on every coating to verify that it meets our standards for durability and wear. Our testing process utilizes expensive equipment that simulates several years of extreme weather. The weather is we simulate is very hard on paint: high heat and high humidity, wet freezing rain, and extended UV exposure. While our testing device can simulate 2 years of weather in just a few weeks, most paint companies don’t bother with this type of testing becasue of the effort and expense.
Does this product meet local VOC requirements?
Local VOC (volatile organic compound) requirements can vary, so you should check local regulations before purchasing. We know there are some areas that require the use of a “low VOC” automotive paint, and we offer an extensive line of low VOC paints for customers in these areas. For more information, please contact us, and be sure to let us know your address (including zip code).
