I have '88 K100LT (brown) that I want to visually update with a paint job this winter. I am thinking that a good color for an aging German road bike would be Ducati "dark" .

I would appreciate any input from painters out there on the forum who may have a clue as to how to duplicate the Ducati "dark" paint. I was told that you could spray a standard Black paint, and the use a Matte finish for the clear coat to achieva reasonable approximation of the "dark" paint. Is this so?
