    Have seen the tinware done in Hammertone paint/powder coat.
    If you're going to paint & detail the engine bay then you have options ..... gloss or satin black paint ..... hammertone may give some alternate colours to set it apart from the rest :rolleyes:

    That grey/silver hammertone is the go. Very durable and easy to touch up.
    hides imperfections better that straight black.

    That said a black semi gloss powder coat is brilliant.
