So I have the e-brake, brake assembly and acc. pedal all removed. I am wanting to clean them up and paint them. What would the correct color be? I think the top half was natural and the bottom half gloss black. Any Idea what type of rattle can paint would do the job?
Thanks

First the accelerator pedal is all natural and the others are as you stated natural on top and satin black on the lower portion. I used Eastwood Detail grey for the acc. and upper portion of the pedals. Someone posted a comparision not long ago of different Krylon and Rustoleum products. I believe they said the Rustoleum Professional (the big cans) "Stainless Steel" #7519 was a good match to the detail grey.

Gas pedal: natural
E-brake:
assembly = natural
pedal = dipped in semi-gloss black up to where it meets the assembly
release lever bracket = dipped in semi-gloss black at an angle so that there is a small triangular natural area natural at the very end.

Pedal Support = natural (but ford service replacements were black)
Brake pedal = dipped in semi-gloss black to just below pivot point.

For natural finish, I just bead blast the parts and clear coat them with a satin clear. Note: if you have a parking brake warning light (just below the ignition) you have to make sure that the ground strap that bolts to the e-brake assembly touches bare metal.
