I HAVE TRIED THIS : 2 PARTS 2K PAINT
1 PART HARDENER

PLUS 50% FLATTENER AT LAST.
I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH THAT.

Are you talking about charcoal black metallic? I see you have a 67 so I assume thats what you are looking for. PPG 32586

One of the reasons for the confusion was that Ford called it "black" though it was really Dark Charcoal Metallic as Tim listed above. IF you do a search you will see this is a common topic here and you need to know how to undercoat it as well as prep the surface to get the best, most original finish for your restoration

-In areas where there is grain I suggest that they get stripped down to bare metal (paint remover using a fine, brass brush)

-Treat any surface rust with a remover and converter

-Then over this (some use a very light coat of primer - I don't)

- Lay down one or two light coats of semi-gloss black

- Spray two light coats of the Charcoal (different directions) that should dry as is hits the surface. Don't allow it to build up because this will fill the grain and make the final finish too glossy.
