I just "throwded" up a generic splatter color showing Eastwood has it.

Judge, have you used the Eastwood stuff? Their description says black/aqua, does it have grey in it too? I need to get some of that stuff too.

No it does not. The Eastwood stuff is mostly black with aqua spatters. You'll find lots of sources that claim that was correct for 69, but I know better. My trunk definitely was mostly a darker gray background with two-color spatters - light gray (or maybe really small black) and aqua I'm pretty sure - and I'm positive that was the original factory color. I've not seen it anywhere. Interestingly enough, the GTO Restoration Guide (Zazarine and Roberts) doesn't mention the trunk paint colors for 68 or 69.

Be aware that thepartsplaceinc.com also has trunk splatter paint that's less expensive and also does not require clear-coating like Eastwood's does. I'm probably going to use theirs instead.
