In the restoration process of my car I am going to repaint the engine shrouding sheet-metal, benzene tank and various other metal parts under the hood to approach stock look as much as possible. This raises a couple of questions. My car is a 1975. Was stock paint for tank, engine shroud, etc. a satin or gloss? I've seen both in pictures that I've found online but can't tell which were stock or restored. From what I can tell mine was a satin/flat. I'm trying to match original as close as possible just for nostalgic reasons. I've found a nice rattle-can epoxy spray paint (corrosion, salt resistant mainly for shocks, undercarriage, etc. according to the label) that lays down really nice and is available in both a high gloss and satin(hence my #1 question). It says its max temperature is 250f. Would temps on the engine shrouding of a Trabi ever reach those temps? I will throw a sample piece into the oven that I use for powder-coating to test. Appreciate any input.
