Firewall Paint

Hi everyone
I'm restoring a 72 Nova and I'm ready to paint the firewall and dash and was wondering whats a good durable satin paint to us.I've smoothed the firewall and painted with SPI epoxy and was thinking of just leaving it like that but I've noticed it scratches easily I painted the underside,inside and trunk with SPI epoxy primer and it seems pretty durable to chemicals but you can scratch it.When I say scratch I'm saying hitting it with something ,I guess all paint will scratch.You can rub on it all day with a rug and its good,I've even taken paint thinner and rubbed on it and it will not hurt it.Sitting here posting this makes me think this is some pretty good stuff.

Epoxy is a great sealer and it does look cool but I don't think it's as tough as paint. I spray suspension parts with epoxy and then clear it with a satin clear for protection. If you like the look I guess you could do the same with yours.
I would color match it to the body paint. RICK
