    Brad...

    this is true...the clear matte sprays I have used have this effect to some degree...

    there is also a clear satin spray...but it seems a little too shiny to me...

    even though the dullcoats or matte sprays dull the brilliance of the paint a tad...
    I still think it's the right move as a final touch on a flaking repair...
    maybe not on a minor touch up...but for sure on a flaking issue.....
    Thought I heard a rumblin',
