it doesnt have to be transparent. paint it the color you want and then use transparent (clearcoat) over the colored paint so that the job will look better for a longer time (just like your car's exterior).

transparent paints do help around the ac controls though, so it is a good idea to look into those unless you want the little pictures do disappear forever.

if your using gloss black, the only problem i ever really had with it is that when the sun hits it, it gets a bronzy look to it. You might want to try flat black with a clearcoat over that, it keeps the color a lot better, just my opionion though.

good suggestion. flat black with clearcoat will probably look more black
