Just wanted to make sure that the underside of the hood was indeed 60% black on the 68. I have seen some body color ... cheers

Yes, they were blacked out.
I have seen some high point "concours" cars that have gaps in the blackout where the paint mask & hanger blocked the paint from reaching the part.

This is the correct color and sheen.

Many cars I see have too much of a gloss to it. Its a satin you are looking for. This is advertised as semi-gloss and satin. The whole engine bay is this color.

The rattle can gives great results flows nice.

Under the hood is 30% gloss black, it is the only part of the car except for the front part of the dash that is not 60%. The firewall, inner fenders, frame, a-arms are all 60% gloss black.



Also, you can use Rust-oleum flat (7 parts), Rust-oleum gloss (3 parts) and an oil based thinner and save some money and time rather than trying to find 30% gloss black rattle cans.
