engine compartment black

hey guys, got a long cold winter ahead started painting the motor last night took the A/C off and all the brackets and tons of masking. its coming right along. My question is all the black components under the the hood such as A/C brackets, alternator, fender wells,radiator support and most of the black components is it all the same 60 % gloss black?

Yes, everything you listed including the firewall in the engine compartment is 60% gloss black except for the bottom of the hood which is 30% gloss black,

Depends on how good the existing coating is. If it's in good shape, not peeling, hasn't worn through, etc. then scuff, clean, and paint should work fine.

I agree with Mr. Bear. I touched up a couple small places on my '67's firewall that had peeled due to pressure washing. The original body color was underneath. I don't think they used primer under the underhood paint....So, I'd just scuff lightly and shoot. I forget what brand low-gloss paint I used, but the match was so good I can not tell where I touched it up. Ditto on the fenderwell where the battery cable rubbed the original paint. on my Baltimore built car, the gloss level is low, about 20%....not 60% on these parts. My alternator brackets, etc are higher gloss.

Thanks Bear and geeteeoguy, in some spots the paints is peeling and the underneath is showing no major rust or anything like that on the fernderwells. The radaitor support and batter box has surface rust around those parts i was going to wire brush them andd sand than a little primer and paint. The cars never really had a "real" paint job before someone previously tapped off all the chrome and and windows and sprayed so the firewall still looks like it did from 67, orginal chalk writing on it still.

Your 67 block is metalic blue, here are a couple screenshots from the GTO restoration guide on some of the engine compartment paint;



The image illustration mentions 64 but applies to 64-67 for the inner fenders or splash shields;
