Trunk Spatter paint

Okay so I'm looking for some grey/aqua trunk spatter paint for a 65 trunk. Can't find it anywhere. Does it exist or did G.M. discontinue it? It says in the GTO Restoration Guide the trunk color was grey/aqua. What did you guys use? Another brand? Another close match color?

Sure I'm a racist. You wanna race?

Original Parts Group Has It. $19.95 For A Rattle Can. They Call It Black/aqua, But I Think It's What You Are Looking For. Paul

As far as I know, only two colors were available for the `65 trunk, blue(aqua)/black and Gray/Black. Floor is painted the same as the sides.

Rukee is correct. Also, NO GTO's had the wheel houses painted body color. The entire trunk area, inlcuding the wheel houses, was spatter painted. My '65 has the original gray/black spatter, and my '67 has the aqua and black. The '65 was built at Fremont, CA, and the '67 is a Baltimore Maryland car. Perhaps different plants used different spatter paint.........

I used aqua/black on my 67 but there were only two choices grey/black and aqua/black. Luckily my inner quarter panels were aqua and black so it was an easy choice.....I painted it myself and I dare say, it turned out great!

Oh yeah, check with your local auto body supply store. I only paid 9 dollars a can.
