Spray can or from a paint gun? Reason for asking is that this looks much more original (slight sheen) than what I have seen from the rattle can.

The trunk looked in pretty nice shape before. So many are rusted out. Even here in So. Calif.
I had a 65 that the surfer kept his salty wet towel's in the trunk. What a rusty mess!
Love the finished detail you have now.thumbs up

I was going to use the splatter paint in the rattle can (Dupli-color) but they have changed it up and I wasn't satisfied with the paint.I cleaned it good,primed it and then used Rust-Oleum's American Accents (the stone textured finish), over that I put a satin finish clear.To me it looks more factory than the other I have used.

Based on the joint about 2" above the bottom, it looks like a replacement pan has been installed sometime in the past.
