What paint to use
« on: September 11, 2011, 03:50:31 PM »

I am refinishing some under hood parts and need to know if I should be using satin or semi-gloss black for the fan shroud, fan blades and water pump pulley. What about the air cleaner as well ?

The shroud I'd paint flat black.  Then the fan and pullies Semi-gloss, or satin black.  Air claner I'd paint gloss black.

I don't think the factory air cleaners were real glossy but more of a semi-gloss, I know our bought-new 67 Fury was that way.

The air-cleaner I have has that "flakey," krinkled look to it.  Don't know what it's called; it is a flat though.  But, that was used on the ACs from '70 and up.

Rexus's pic looks like how I remember them new and all the 70-77 Cs I had.

Paint or style?  My AC is from a '70.  It is not the original, but the original single snorkle one I removed is in the krinkle/flat style too.  Rex's is pre-'70, I'll agree, but it's style (with round holes) was not used after '69.

Don't know about the style, I was commenting on the shine-i-ness of the
paint on Rex's aircleaner looking how I remember it is all.

I thought that was what you were referencing.  I got my AC at a Mopar swap meet.  It is '70 specific and was the type used on the 300 Hurst cars, but as for the other C's, I must admit, I can't even imagine one.

300 Hursts may well have had crinkle (krinkle?) black on the a/c, I
know they had a lot of custom touches... one of those stories: I had a
chance to buy a nice 300 Hurst around 1982 for like 3k and didn't...
D'OH!

HA!  We all seem to ahve that story - the one that got away.  I had my butt in a '65 L 4-speed car in the mid-'90s I could have had for $6,200.  To this DAY I wish I had persued making that happen.  The car appeared on ebay a few years ago, in England, untouched from the day I saw it, and the owner was asking 7 grand.  It did not sell.
