Don't know about any differences, I used the satin black on my firewall, looked close to me, and beat Eckler's $11.00 a can for the "correct" paint.... Click on my build link and look at the fender panels, I painted the entire engine compartment with it......

I used Eastwood's UnderHood black, and I am VERY pleased with the results. I originally had Rustoleum's semi-flat black on it, but the Eastwood paint just looks better. It has a very factory look to it. When I reworked my engine compartment, I used the whole POR15 process, then Eastwood's black Self-etching primer, then Underhood black over it.

I have an extra can I'd be happy to sell to you for a better price. PM me if you want it. 1 can is plenty for the job.

This is satin gloss black thinned with (i think) acetone. Turned out better than I expected. As far as I can tell it turned out just like the factory intended. I shot it out of a touch-up gun. I'm satisfied with the result.

Pro is their line of "better" product. I do not recall exactly what it contains, I think better solids and adhesion?

2177 is semi gloss. I'll look for a pic.

Rustoleum Satin Black is as about as close to GM as you can get. I have done a lot of original show cars and most of them have been done with it. I have shot it from a gun and out of the can and both seem to hold up about the same.

yes, id like to get it close to the original GM look as possible. and i will be shooting it out of a paint gun with probably a 1.8 nozzle on the gun. should i use acetone to thin it a little? will the acetone make the paint more flat looking when fully dried?

also what type of primer did you guys use before spraying your top coat? is the rustoleum Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer good to use? it says on there wedsite that provides rust protection to clean or lightly rusted metal. Apply directly over rust to allow superb adhesion for finishes. Works with bare or previously painted metal. i only have some light rust here and there, no heavy rusting....what you think?
