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'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.
The squirrels in my head have spoken.
Cobra 5.0L & AOD swap, here we come.
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.
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!
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).
