Under hood paint color

Should I paint the underneath of the hood the color of the car or black? I know it came black from the factory. What have you guys done when you painted yours?

would there be an issue with heat from the engine if you use the same paint you are using on the outside?

interestingly enough, mine is painted the original Charcoal Blue on the inside, but it is in a lot worse shape than the body is. after cleaning it up, i intended to paint it with black engine paint.

As per the GTO restoration Guide, the underside of the hood should be 30% gloss black.

From factory the under hood had over spray from the topside on the edges feathering inward on the 60į black. Eastwood's under hood black satin has the right sheen. Most when restoring omit the over spray.

What year are we talking about? My '70 GTO is body color under the hood and it is definitely original.
