COR­RECT HOOD­SCOOP SHEEN

Mustang Monthly - - RESTOROUNDUP -

We would like to know what prod­uct you use for the black fin­ish on the 1970 Boss 429 hood­scoop. The PPG Hot Rod Black we tried seemed too flat. We tried to flat­ten some PPG Con­cept Black, but it looked milky— not black enough. We saw the two 1970 Boss 429s at the Kansas City MCA show and re­ally liked the color and sheen. Please share the mix code. Thanks. Fel­low Boss Re­storer Via the In­ter­net

The paint we use on the 1970 Boss 429 hood­scoop is fac­tory pack Dit­zler DDL 9423 acrylic lac­quer. The scoops were orig­i­nally painted in RM lac­quer at Kar Kraft. We use PPG DP90LF as a base, or it may be used as a sealer if the scoop re­quires re­pair. It’s dif­fi­cult to repli­cate the OEM lac­quer fin­ish with flat­tened ure­thane black.
