I like Sem Trim Black for what your thinking
It doesn't need a primer and will last and last as well as easy to freshen up with another coating down the line ...
Don't strip the car, you'll hurt it more than help it. ...
(if you have to ask just don't)
Save the stripping for when your ready to restore all the way.

For now just wash with water Ajax and a scotchbite pad. Then mask er up and spray the Sem Trim Black in satin finish.

Start on a door down low instead of straight to the hood. This way you'll have some practice before mucking up where it counts ya know? ... ... Easy mist coats a little at a time .. if you rush you'll

This paint is the best acting paint to ever come out of a rattle can in this reporters opinion.. You could do your project in the hot rod satin black look without all the spray guns and hoopla etc...though they do make it in regular quarts but the spray can works well since gloss is not the goal.

This is the exact same paint used on many older Porsche Targa bars as well as Porsche Fuchs wheels reproduceing the factory satin black apperance...

Or you could open a messy can of worms by clicking
John Deere Blitz Black??
