Guys,
I've sandblasted the control arms and want to try to match the color to the factory specs as close as possible. Does anyone know the code and a good place to buy the paint?
Thanks,
Paul

Any decent semi-gloss black or satin black. It's about a 20% gloss....a lot less "shiny" than over-restored cars usually show, but NOT flat black. I've used Rustoleum semi gloss with great results. Whatever you use, it'll be better than the factory....their paint was super thin and spotty under these cars. I'm not 100% convinced the frames were painted at all originally, either, although I've been told otherwise....

I used Eastwood Ceramic 2k Satin Chassis black on mine, the gloss/luster is very close to correct and the paint is pretty tough too, once it cures.
