I scuffed mine up with steel wool. Then cleaned them up wish dish soap. Sprayed 3 coats of adhesion promoter then let it dry. Sprayed 3-4 coats of paint and let them dry. Then 4 coats of clear.

Why would you clear flat black?

maybe he didn't notice i said flat black cuz that doesn't make sense to me either. I would assume it would just be adhesive promoter and paint.

You still clear flat black, you just don't use gloss. Spray it with matte. If you don't clear them they will get dirty and chalky practically overnight.
