    Rebuilding the heater / ac box in my 69 Super Bee, factory AC

    Have sand blasted and ready for primer / paint.

    Would I be correct to assume black semi gloss?

      I have used and will use POR15 Chassis Black. Really good direct to metal paint. No primer necessary. Nice factory satin finish.

        I used a satin black spray bomb with primer included on mine. I used Eastwood's bare metal spray on the unpainted parts. On the fiber box in my E body, I used SEM landau black.

        Have a really close look and I think you'll find they are actually Dark Walnut Brown, just like a ramcharger/airgrabber air box...

          He is asking about an AC box which is all metal. They are not brown plastic like the heater only box is.
