    I'm curious as to what black paint is used to touch up and or recolor the rear taillight surround and the headlight and turn signal slats on a 66, I've been told flat black, satin black, even gloss. Is there a brand that I should look for?

    SEM makes a Trim Black. I used it on all my trim on my ‘66 Belvedere. Looked nearly identical to the original color and texture. Disclaimer: Your Charger may be different.

    Which sem color did you use, matte 49133?, satin 49143?, or the trim black purple color spray can?

    I used the satin as it is easier to clean than matte
    the grille gets bug guts, and road grim

    but I don't care about absolutely 100% correct

    I use SEM trim black, but have used Dominion Sure Seal self etch primer first on some trim.
    How much does the car sit in the sun? I am fairly certain that what I use will last years.
