67 SD Paint Questions


I am doing a body on color change to the original of Provincial White.I found a 396 325hp engine out of a 67 Chevelle SS this summer and want to take the car back to how it was born on March 6th 1967.Car is at the body shop now and they will be starting on it soon.Questions i have are the following:

     1. What color should be painted under the hood of a BB car??   white?  ive heard flat black?

     2. Proper color of hood hinges??

     3. The gills on each side are painted body color...are they a "peel and stick" adhesive on the tips??

     4.Body color on the firewall!

     5. When you open the trunk all you should see is white,white and more white??

     6. Anyone have a drivers side eye brow moulding they would part with?? Right side is good but left is poor!

     7. Any recommendations for a good chrome polish??

      Really looking forward to getting this car finished and on the road for spring.Mixed emotions about painting it as i really liked the color combo and the paint was still very presentable being a 33 yr old paint job but thinking it will be very nice to get it back to original color and 396!Thanks in advance!!

There is a pair of 67 eye brows on Kijiji, yes body color on firewall and inside of trunk, I think under hood is body color.

Under the hood is semi gloss black similar to the wheel wells... with a bit of body colour overspray around the edge underneath. Hinges were likely grey phosphate coated, I've used vht cast iron as an alternate on a few cars it's a decent look. Side fins are chrome, painted body colour with the raised edge left unpainted.

Yup, nothing in there but white as far as the eye can see!

Thanks for those replies!!I had heard flat black under hood but nice to know semi gloss was correct.Just nice to get those little things right when your trying to get back to a original look.Going to go with a black SD stripe package as well to bust up the white...had my painter say he would try a flat black color on the stripe vs a gloss black but pretty sure original stripe cars were gloss black as they were only offered in white and black stripes i believe.
