Default Metal trunk floor paint

I bought a repro panel to replace a rusted trunk for panel for my 24 coupe. I am not going to restore the car, just clean it up and get it reliable and safe. I have primed the new piece and was wondering what kind of black the finish coat should be? Given where it is, it probably doesn't matter much, but I would like it to be some like what was original. Should I paint it a gloss or satin or what? Any brand people people prefer over another?

Given what I have read elsewhere, I guess I could even brush paint it!


Thanks!

Do it like Ford did - put couple coats of cheap black paint on it and then install it.

That was my thought. I read the article you posted on the MTFCA forum a few years ago. I should have done that search before I posted this. ;-)
