I dont know of any different blacks. Its either black or they have a few other colors like yellow white, etc...but the black is matte black.
Just make sure you clean the surface well with alcohol. Without sanding or priming, shoot thick layers of the plasti-dip (if you shoot thin layers like you would with normal paint, you'll end up with a very rough surface). And don't worry you'll see a bit of bubbles when you end your first coat, but as it dries those bubbles disappear and the surface evens out, if surface doesnt look wet when you apply it, it means you haven't sprayed enough. Apply 2-3 coats waiting enough between each coat as indicated on the can. Make sure you have fresh air where you shoot just like with you would with any other paint, and you should also wear a simple painter's mask (its like 2-3$). And then BAM instant OEM look in a can:
Here I did the radiator sides and the plastic above the pegs. See how they blend in with the engine cover.
You them man! Thanks
In the video from the company - they said do 5 coats. This was a video on doing a motorcycle too.
2 cans is plenty?
