Hey guys, I'm going to buy some Tamiya Paint to do a black interior. Should I get Matt or Flat black?

Also I can't remember if this is correct, but should I only use Tamiya Primer with Tamiya paints? For some reason that sticks in my mind. My only other primer is normal automotive primer. Thanks inadvance

Matt is Flat, but Tamiya only makes Semi Gloss Black and Matt Black in their TS paints. You can use Tamiya primer with all kinds of paints.:)

I used Tamiya Matte Black on my 300ZX interior.. it looks great to me!

I use Plasticote Primer, and it works very well for Tamiay paint

I thought Matt was flat, but Matt (TS-6) is in the Gloss section at one of the places I'm looking at buying it from.

Sorry My question was, is automotive primer fine for Tamiya paints? I know it "should" be fine, but I just have it stuck in my mind that someone had posted multiple times only use Tamiya primer when using Tamiya paints.
