What arer the correct colors for these?
« on: February 05, 2013, 01:57:07 AM »
I'm getting ready to have some parts powder coated.   I know there is a list on here for colors but it doesn't have some info.   What black color is the cowl induction air cleaner top cover?  Gloss or semi gloss.  What black color for the bottom part?  What black color is the flat seal ring? 

Thanks, Wayne

You are not going to achieve the "correct" color with powder coat, however to answer the question none of those parts are full gloss.

I would paint if you are going for correct.

X3, sort of...  It may not look totally correct with powder coating (more of a difference in texture than color match), but there are skilled shops that can come close.  Bascially, what you will get is "over restoration".

Okay, I'll buy that.  Powder coating the breather won't look right.  Then if I use semi gloss paint on all 3 pieces that would be correct and look right?

I matched the color/gloss from an NOS cowl cleaner that I own when doing an L48 auto (ThermAC) cowl cleaner a few months ago - the best match I found was Dupli-Color acrylic enamel DA1603 semi-gloss black - to me, a dead-on match when it dried (very glossy when wet). I compared the 2 side by side, and could not see a difference in gloss or texture. Watch the temperature when you spray, too cold and you'll orange peel a little (but then again, factory paint was light years from perfect !). 

Jerry has good suggestions in the '69 Definitive book's part finish section if you want a better guide. If you don't like spray bombing parts, a good auto paint mixer can get you there from Jerry's gloss percentages/recommendations. Just my opinions -
