I need some expert advice on which black color (Semi-gloss,satin,flat etc) to use?

1) Front and rear fiberglass "spoilers" sections below bumpers

2) Gas tank

3) Front hood springs

4) Air Box (Paint overspray)

5) Rocker panels

6) Charcoal canister (has paint overspray)

7) Plastic rain tray (overspray)

8) Licence plate bracket

9) Parking brake

10) Pedals

Thanks!!!

I have yet to find the perfect finish in a spray can.

Dupli-Color Ford semi-gloss engine paint is what I use for most of what you list, I'll get the color number and post it this evening.

For the spoilers/valances/fairings the spray can will work ok but it's not the right type of paint in regards to rock chips, etc., and the color isn't a perfect match for the factory semi-flat.

I recently got a single stage epoxy spray semi flat/gloss black but I haven't used it yet.
