Can anyone tell me the correct color spatter paint for a '71 Nova SS? I'm not sure if it's Gray/white or Aqua/Blk. Also like to know if they had trunk mats?

Trunk paint

That would be Aqua/Blk for 68 and up. Make sure you clear coat it or it will smear. Not sure on the trunk mats, I know my 69 had one.
You might try checking the NNN online catalog and see if they list one for that year.

trunk mat..

I believe the mat was an option that came with the upgraded interior...all of our deluxe cars have a mat. You could probably order it separately or at the parts counter.

The originals had a habit of sticking to the spatter paint...all the years of heat kind of melt the backing....i try to take them out over the winter or put something under them to let some air in...they are great moisture traps.:(

Yes, My 71 we just restored was aqua/blk. They actually sprayed mine with the trunk mat in the trunk.When i bought the car,the mat was long gone but the outline of the mat was left with no splatter paint where the mat was,just a semigloss black base.

If you spring for the original water based splatter paint formula you do not need to clear coat. This is the technically correct paint available in quarts.

Anything else you need to clear coat. Good prep work is required with either type.

Have you checked out Eckler's? I bought spatter paint for my '65 that was oil based and didn't require sealing.
