Hi Jonny, yes there is a matt finish lacquer, you use the same 2k lacquer but the difference is you need to apply a matting agent, there are various ratios for the type of finish you want to achieve, alot of Renault bumper moldings, door moldings are done like this, hope that helps fella, just pm me if you need any more advice :D

It's a pity the pic's aren't a bit clearer but overall i'm loving the colour scheme and i have to agree with you on clear coating the decals as i wished they had been clear coated on my old muddy when i had that as it didn't take much to chip them with being painted on ..
