Semigloss black. NAPA sells the exacyt match color in an aerosol spray bomb but I can not recall the exact name of the product. I think it is called Chassis Black.

I also would like to know the cheapest place to buy quarter panels. I do not want salvage yard panels.

Garage
Perhaps not as cheap, Eastwood sells "Underhood Black" that has the right gloss level.

Tractor supply also sells chassis blk....it's for tractor/implements, however
I like to use a catalized paint so it will not be effected by gasolene.

Tractor supply also sells a hardner you can add to the paint.

For my cars ...I paint the firewall body color with the same paint I use on the body....bc/cc.
