THANKS, THOUGHT I HAD SEEN THAT THE DECALS WERE AVALIBLE, JUST COULDN'T FIND THE POST. IS THERE A REFERENCE FOR UNDERHOOD PAINT FINISHES? WHAT BLACK SHOULD BE USED ON DIFFERENT PARTS (FLAT, MATTE, GLOSS, SATIN, SEMI-GLOSS). ARE SOME OF THESE THE SAME, OR DO THEY ALL DIFFER FROM ONE ANOTHER? THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF CHOICES confuse FOR SUCH A SIMPLE COLOR (NON-COLOR?). IS THERE A PARTICULAR BRAND THAT WILL GIVE BETTER RESULTS? I WANT TO SPEND A WEEKEND AND CLEAN UP UNDER MY HOOD A BIT. WILL PROBALY END UP RE-DOING MOST OF IT WHEN THE CAR GETS DISASSEMBLED, BUT AT LEAST TIL THEN I CAN POP THE HOOD FOR FRIENDS AND SHOW THEM SOMETHING OTHER THAN RUST AND PEELING BLACK SPRAY PAINT. ANY THOUGHTS, TIPS OR ADVICE IS VERY MUCH WELCOMED.
  THANX

Well I usually just go to Canadian Tire and look at the huge assortment of automotive paints they have. The have all types of paint from high heat to plastic trim paint to caliper paint, rocker paint, truck bed paint, everything really.

I refinished my front air dam in matt black plastic trim paint and it looks like new. I suggest using your judgement, I mean these rattle cans only cost 7 or 8 bucks so how wrong can you go. I think you could probably use black gloss low heat paint on the air cleaner rated to about 800 degrees, either that or matt black, flat black is for sure not right.

As luck would have it I have a picture, below that has gloss black on the lid and matt black on the base, I was experimenting with a dual snorkle base. I like the gloss look myself.

 HI ELROY. I MIGHT MAKE IT DOWN THIS WEEKEND, BUT THE CAR WON'T UNLESS I TRAILER IT, WHICH I DON'T WANT TO DO. IT HAS NOT HAD AN OUT OF PROVINCE INSPECTION YET. I KNOW IT WILL NOT PASS, SO THE CAR IS NOT CURRENTLY REGISTERED. IF I MAKE IT DOWN I WILL SEARCH YOU OUT. WILL YOU HAVE ANY CARS THERE?
 THANX RAY. I GUESS I WILL JUST WING IT. ANYTHING WILL BE AN IMPROVEMENT OVER THE CURRENT MESS.

I HAVE NOT ORDERED ANY YET. I AM HOPING THEY WILL TAKE A MONEY ORDER AS I DO NOT OWN A CREDIT CARD. I WILL CALL THEM WHEN I ORDER AND FIND OUT.

I have a credit card but do not use paypal. If he dosn't take money order but only credit card over the phone. I could get yours for you and mail them to you when I get them.
