I need to "touch up" my Power Brake Booster in my 1974.4 TR6.

I would like some advise on the type of paint, gloss, satin, semi-gloss, etc?

Thanks

When I got mine back from being rebuilt,
they powder coated it high gloss black.

When I had my TR6: I stripped it bare. Spray bombed Rust Oleum (How do you spell that) Primer (2 light coats): Then Spray bombed "HIGH GLOSS" lacquer (2 light coats): Came out great looking.

Or the "BEST" suggestion was to do whatever pleases you most!!

I'd say RED, but that's just me......after all, it is for the brakes.

I went with gloss black also. It's such a visually prominent piece that I think it looks good in gloss. The wiper motor I did in satin black with a silver hold down strap.
But, as others have said, whatever you like is correct.

Oh Man!! I like that!!
Bringing yet another once lost soul into world of color.
Now I'm gonna change mine to red as well.
