Yes....semi gloss is about 60%. For the 20%, it's referred to as "semi flat".

Also,

You can mix 6 parts of Rust-Oleum Gloss black with 4 parts Rust-Oleum Flat black, dilute with an oil based thinner and spray. The gloss is perfect and holds up well.

Sites like AMES Performance have a good selection of "spray bomb" cans with a variety of colors, and a general guide as to where they are used.

I am in the process of building a makeshift paint booth in my shop, and thinking of giving this formula a try. I have an old spray gun I have not used in many years... as a general starting point, how many parts of the thinner should a person add to the mix?

It has been a few years, but I think it was 3 or 4 parts of the paint mix to 1 part thinner. You can see the painted inner fenders, firewall and undercarriage in my photo gallery. Check out my makeshift paint booth as well.

Paint data sheets or can usually have some thinning instructions as well.

I have been using some dupli color rattle cans.. I don't have a spray gun or an air compressor big enough to do that and the motor is still in the car.

I've used the hi temp paint for grills and wood stoves. Perfect match.

Look for GM Chassis and Restoration Reconditioning black. That is the 100% correct paint. It's very expensive and hard to find, but you can usually get it at corvette restoration sites.
