Engine Bay Black Paint Color

356 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  lust4speed
65 GTO needing some quick engine bay detail for local car show, Don't have allot of money or time to spend but looking for correct color paint for engine bay touch up. Attempted radiator shroud and found it too flat black. Color in front of shroud should be correct color. Anyone know what is correct or close to it to get a whores bath detail job? Aside from obvious, any other ideas are welcome.
Many thanks..

I ended up going with a Satin Black. Not quite as flat as the flat and really liked the end result. Here are some pictures of my outcome and the rattle can I used.

I agree with Baaad65, gloss look good but will quickly show start to develop scratches and which will show up easily.

One more thing. No water what you decide on, I have a feeling your not going to be 100% satisfied with your end result unless it all matches (Firewall, wheel wells, etc).
