I want to paint my car flat black and I just need to know how to maintain it?
As far as I am aware, you treat it just like any other paint job. I understood the flat finish is actually in the clear coat and you treat it like any other clear coat as you cannot 'polish out' the flat or matte finish.

Wash as normal, Clay when you need to, which is generally more often then gloss paint, and find a good spray wax that doesn't stain matt finishes. Duragloss #951 would be a good bet. You will have to apply it more often than gloss paint also. I would suggest at least once a month.
You can't really polish it, so you are pretty much stuck with washing and waxing it.
Yeah the top half of my car is satin black, we had them mix a matte into the clearcoat, and weird things happen when you use, say Color-X on it. This summer after I finally wetsand the gloss pink and get the car all cleaned up (3 years later??!!?) I'll probably just clay the satin black and wax it with AW (Showtime's PPP I think is the same thing).
windex a soft brush and warm water makes it look awsome
