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.

My '64 1/2 vert. Ordered May '64. D code 4 speed, handling package, caspian blue, accent group, Ford blue manual top.

'68 vert. driver. Owned since Apr '78. C code AT, AC, PS, P disc B, PT lime gold, standard black interior and top. NOS RF fender and left quarter.New top and folding glass.

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!

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).
