confused xa gt hood black?

I'm getting a new bonnet put on(the original has a shaker hole) and want to know what is the correct paint code for the hood black. I've heard the proper shade is a satin black. Also does anyone know what are the exact dimensions for the stripes and how far in from the edge

1 inch from the edge, 1 inch wide. I think it should be matt black.

The paint code wont tell you the sheen or gloss level. Black is black!

Depending on what product you want to use you'll have to get the black's gloss level fattened off with flating base.

Re: xa gt hood black?

I ussed a dulux black years ago on an XC i was told was the correct factory shade for the blackouts which is the same as GT's i believe.I can look up the number if needed .It was from memory called 20% gloss which comes out a satin sort of finish.

Re: xa gt hood black?

Yep, I had the Dulon people mix up a similar concoction for me when I had my other GT 10 years ago. I may still have the tin with the correct formulae too.

Lemme know if anyone wants me to check.
