I did my 66 gto's for the tempest and they came out very nice, just re-did the tempest ones last night but they are just silver. Of course you will want to wash and scrub them with dawn detergent and water with a bristle brush to get in all the recesses. a light coat of primer or adhesion promoter after drying then paint and mask, allow the silver to dry at least 24 hrs before you mask it for the black. Eastwood will have all the supplies you need. i used rustolium satin black and metallic silver with the tricycle on the front....not original but close enough in my book cheaper and available at HD. you can see the gto ones re-finished in my avatar.
