69 SS BLACK grill (Satin or flat??)
« on: July 08, 2012, 08:00:15 PM »
Hello, I wanted to paint my front grill on my 69SS the correct black color. Currently it is silver.  What would be the best choice of Black??  I have a can of Krylon Satin Black and a can of Seymour Dull Black?  Thank you.

Black grilles were molded in black plastic and not painted.. So you need to match the lustre of the plastic. Satin would be it in my opinion.
Body color on the surround (please! -Don't make it look like a tack-on job by having the entire grille the one color.)

Thanks for the reply Steve.  The outer color is the correct LeMans Blue.  I just wanted the center grill area Black.
