Hi. I’m restoring an early 70’s fj40. I’m wondering why all the restorations I’ve seen. Great and amazing ones use glossy black on the chassi and axels. I tought/remember that they are supposed to be flat black. It look great. But what’s the best move🤔

I totally understand your dilemma and I looked around to find a black that was not too shiny, and not completely flat. I tried the Kirker Urethane Hot Rod Black in Satin and love it! I buy it from TP tools...see link below. If you want to just try it out, they also sell it in a quart size. (don't forget to get the activator as well as the paint).

I used a single stage satin hot rod black on my grille and bumper looks great on the exterior.it was a 4:1:1 went on really smooth and has held up well so far.
I would agree that glossy is not so desirable for chassis but perhaps the strong stuff comes in gloss only cause that’s what Dad used everywhere on the 40
