In his build thread, Lord Vadus provided this great tip:
The secret to making gloss paint look dirty or worn/faded is to wash the car with water that has a high mineral content and LET water spots form. IF you can get the car in a dusty rain, do so and leave it on to receive a nearly 100% Bluesmobile look.

Here's the image; note that the paint underneath is still somewhat glossy and intact. This is the reason that I chose a gloss paint scheme for my car instead of a flat one. I like to think of it as bits of the gem that the car truly is shining through.
Yep, thats my experience. Just do nothing, I was also told that gloss from a spray can wont be as glossy as one is afraid of, it will fade, sun will help, and sure go find dirt, drive it in a slightly rainy day, tuck back away and do nothing, it will begin to cake on and get that look, however one chooses to describe it, but movie look is one way of saying it!
