I got crappy tire stuff. Worked great. Make sure its clean and dry prior to painting.

Plasticote makes trunk paint and it probably does the CTC brand too but it requires a clear coat and that is not the look I want. I am not a purist restoring my car but some stuff is better factory style.
If the weather is good tomorrow morning, Im squirting the trunk.......will post before and after pics unless it is a disaster...............

I would strongly discourage the use of trunk spatter spray bombs,  you will regret it,  not waterproof,  even with clear.  has a terrible rougher texture than original,  its generally total crap

THe best way,  and best results are this

take black paint and white paint,  mix them 50/50  to get a grey,and spray the entire trunk using a air paint gun( nothing fancy),  use your favorite paint from a body shop supplier,  or just go buy tremclad if you are on the cheap.

Then turn the gun pressure to about 5 psi or les till the paint sort of spits and spats out of the nozzle( dont reduce it),  start with black,  spatter it all over the inside,  then switch to white.  Try a test on a sheet of cardboard till you get the right effect,  it will turn out fantastic and look just like original.

Well the rain held off and I shot the spatter paint this morning, turned out beautiful. It matches the original in texture and it went on nicely. More prep time masking off the trunk and stuff then actual spray time.

Here is my bare wire wheeled trunk then the new painted surface. I did not remove the upper original as it was solid and rust free up there. In a week or so I will wash the upper area out and it should match perfectly as the test area did.
