CAN ANYONE PROVIDE ME -- OR TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND -- THE CORRECT OEM PATTERN FOR THE BLACK-OUT PAINT ON THE HOOD & COWL OF MY MACH 1?

ALSO ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR HOOD PAINT? I UNDERSTAND THE ORIGINAL FLAT BLACK FADES & OXIDIZES. IF IT'S POSSIBLE I'D BE WILLING TO TRADE OFF EXACT OEM FOR SUPERIOR DURABILITY, AS LONG AS I CAN STAY VERY CLOSE TO AN OEM LOOK.

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS & DIRECTION.

I have the '69 Mach 1 hood paint treatment on the hood of my '70....I liked it.....My car is base coat- clear coat. I had the painter to use gloss black because I didn't want clear coat on everything but the hood...I think it looks good, but, drives some people crazy trying to figure out what year it is...Also using a Boss 429 hood scoop....I got the measurements from the web site of a guy that used to build and sell Mustangs here on this web site, but, I think he is out of buisness......

Here check this out.

The original style paint is not available any more.
Are you wanting a semi-gloss or a flat black?
If you went with semi-gloss. I would use Spies Hecker Rallye Matte Black.
Part number FP1004
It is a urethane that is semi-gloss right out of the can.
You do not have to wrestle with gloss flatners or anything like that.
If you use a semigloss, it will look newer-longer than a flat black. Just dont wax any flat or semi-gloss exterior paints, or it will eventually get more glossy, and the wax will show.

Hope this helps.

I have copied Mustang Monthly articles on the correct measurements on this car as wel as 68-73 type striping. Send me your nearest fax number and I will send this info to you on the 69. I used it on my car , I can also tell You what type of paint was used on my hood if interested. Let me know.
