Need your opinions! *Not a Honda Warning!*

Okay guys here's the story..

I busted out the sand paper and sanded down my hood and shot it a base black (just to get an idea, no i didnt use a spray can)

I am thinking of shooting the whole car a matte black, if im not mistaken dupont offers a clear coat for it too... Should i do it or not?

If i change my mind i can just shoot the red over the black that's on the hood.. i still havent painted the bumper or the fenders yet so i need a decision asap

ALSO - Sorry for poor quality.. i had to trade my 3.2MP camera phone with my sister in law for her crap**** blackberry pearl





EDIT: My passenger side front wheel is not cambered as much as my driver's side because a tie rod took a **** on me and i had to replace it and i need to get it cambered all around again

I like the black. Never seen a matte black Miata, so it would indeed be unique.

maybe you can find out what the color is that honda used on the 919, its a flat black but im not sure what exactly it's called but it was a factory color on i think the 02-04 919s, they also did a flat lime green color in 04 that looks amazing also!!
