    16 barrel black paint

    Hello guys,
    I need about 16 barrel black paint, to paint my A7 enclosures black.
    Of course it is a little to much, but I think we can need some paint to paint the White House black.
    What kind of paint is most suitable, any suggestions?

    Why paint it black - does that make it harder to nuke from orbit?
    or are you just a big fan of black speakers?

    If you wish to minimize visual reflections: flat black. If you wish to maximize visual reflections: black gloss lacquer. If you wish to minimize resonances: black automotive sound deadening spray paint.

    No, black is just a better background for graffiti.
