Rattle can + catalyzed matte clear. Looks normal, way tougher + waterproof.

The Parts Place sells a nice spatter paint, I have used it many times works great, However it is spray gun only, comes in quarts, no clear coat required

Are you planning on refinishing the trunk of your Olds? Have you considered DIY truck bedliner kits? I suppose this wouldn't have the same texture but it would definitely be durable.

Iím looking to splatter paint my 68 442 trunk. Iím not really sure what it should look like on a 68. Is it like this trunk photo that I got from an older thread about trunk splatter? Here is a grey splatter that I have a can of. Is that too gray? óBilly

rattle can paint is water based. any moisture in trunk will take paint off. parts place has oil based splatter in quart cans that works the best. did my trunk, looks like original. requires cheap spray gun with 2.5 tip. can buy cheap from harbor freight, worth the buy, do it once be done

Thanks everyone. It appears that there are two camps rattle paint and clear, or the Parts Place. If there are any others let me know.

The secret is that TPPI trunk paint is just a quart of Zolatone. This paint is very hard and not affected by moisture. Has been used for years to paint inside of buses and yes, the original paint for most USA vehicle trunks. Last I checked the aqua and black was no longer available, but onyx will look great and might be correct for Olds. I'm more of a Chevy guy so don't know off hand what color was used in Olds.

The OPGI catalog lists spray cans for Splatter paint meant for trunks. They must be oil or enamel based and should work. Anyone use them? -Billy

Troy - Check into the 2 or 3 spray can system made and sold by Thornton Restorations....appears to be oil based and easy to apply since no spray gun setup needed.
