Hi, I'm painting the inside of the doors and the metal interior panels next to the rear seat. What's a good color? Krylon 1613 or a gloss black? I don't really need a factory correct color or paint type. I'd like to use a paint that's easy to apply and looks good with a black interior. Thanks.

I used the krylon semi-gloss black, and think it looks very good and close to the original.

I'd go with 1613 or maybe a better choice would be Rustoelum 7777 since it's blacker and has a little more shine. I'm using Duplicolor DA1603 and it seems quite a bit blacker and glossier than 1613...I like it.

I like Krylon rattle cans a lot, easy almost foolproof coverage. I use the 1613 a lot and will be using it on the inner door and other interior metal in my standard black interior.

Just my opinion, don't like gloss paint on interior.

Thanks for the info! This should help out in about 10 years when I finally get around to doing my interior. None the less....many thanks!

The correct paint (at least one of them) is what I bought from NPD. It's AP-946 semi-gloss Ebony Black. It's a lacquer that is specifically for 65-73 Mustangs black interior panels.

Another option is to epoxy prime the doors, then use SEM Landau Black. The SEM can be easily touched up with a sponge brush; in addition, the paint comes in a can ready to apply - no catalysts or reducers required.

I second the SEM products. I have used them on my 65 and 66 fastbacks.

Thanks to all for the info. I ended up using the Rustoleum 7777 and am very pleased with the results. I had planned to finish the project this weekend, so I didn't go the SEM route. Thanks again to all who replied. Cheers!

I used a gun paint. PPG's Deltron 2k # DBC9295.

Craig:
When I got the chance to see Red, I noticed that the back panels looked a touch too shiny, but didn't want to say anything. Now that you state you used 9295, and that is the correct color, I now know what happened. The original formula was for satin black, and the formulas today are gloss. I had to add quite a bit of flattener to my 9295 to get it correct. Sad to say, when you look close at the finish, you can see small flecks of white (the flattener).
