    Miscellaneous bracket and component paint -- gloss or semi-gloss

    I am getting ready to paint all of the miscellaneous, black finished brackets, horns, windshield wiper motor, etc on My 1960 TR3A. Is there any guide that tells what paint luster should be used for each component, such as gloss, flat, or semi-gloss?

    Yes, the TRA Restoration Guide. It is online but I don't have the link handy.
