Curious what you guys are using to get a “factory” looking black color on the firewall of your car? I know the paint is low gloss, but definitely not flat. Car is a 1970 if that matters. Thanks

This. Darren suggested this to me 4 years ago, and he was bang on. I did entire chassis, firewall, dash, cages, and interior surfaces of the doors. It looks perfect, and is extremely durable.

Looks good Muffy!!
If that paint holds up on the booms of my logging shovels for years at a time then it is tough stuff! It lays out very nice even on services with imperfections and is damn near as tough as powder coat.

GM used to sell something called reconditioning paint, I had bought a gallon years ago.
It was RTS, was like a semi gloss.

The firewall is Semi Flat like the floor pans, the rest of the inner fender well, core support are semi gloss. if your using spray bombs Krylon Semi Flat for firewall, Rust Oleam Satin black for inner fenders, core support, engine brackets, etc. Be careful, the Rust Oleam drys SLOW! so dust is your enemy.

The GM Reconditioning pint spoken if was Semi Gloss, but pure shit. Right on the can it said you could even paint rubber floor mats and tires with it! among other things. Is was true used car special shit. Consistency of water.
