in order to get it shiney black finish you need to do a lot of sanding so that it has a completely smooth finish then spray it with an adhiesive promoter, gloss black duplicolor paint, then a clear coat.
Heres a pic of mine, i didnt quite sand it down th best i could have but it came out pretty decent.
