yellow tj: krylon/rustoleum black finish choices for armor

I like to keep the yellow paint on my tj as nice as I can by clay barring and waxing it twice a year. Every spring, I also pull off the rockers, corner armor, bumpers, flares etc off and hit them with a freash few coats of black spray paint. I've done semigloss, semiflat, and currently have flat black on everything. I don't like how the flat finish is harder to get clean and wax tends to show up on the flat black easily as well.

So, who uses what finish when it comes to rustoleum or krylon black paint? Thoughts and input is helpful.

I already know that ill be most likely using the krylon fusion satin black for the flares.

Thanks everyone!

Yellow... your making a wise move of putting on a fresh coat each spring!! I've always used a flat black as my base then Duplicolor rattle can spray liner. This combo has seemed to work well for me!

I haven't had any issues with it holding/ retaining dirt and mud after washing. It can have a shine if you desire. I never shine mine, just leave it as its matte color.
