Air box paint color?

Has anyone here painted their air box with a rattle can? If so exactly which paint matches the best? Post some before and after shots as well if you have any
Thanks

I used krylon 1613 semi-flat black because it's what I had on hand. The original finish was glossier. No pics with me but can snap some this weekend when I'm back from the work trip.

Thanks. But as you said it does seem to be more of a gloss black. How did the flat match up?

The powder coater I use says Porsche black is the same as CAT black. All the parts he has powder coated match the factory parts perfectly. Tractor supply or a local CAT dealer should have CAT paint in the rattle can.

Use satin black engine enamel. It can handle up to 500 degrees heat and won't liquefy or soften if gasoline gets on it.
The nicest spraying stuff I've ever used was made by "Plastikote". You spray on a light tack coat and let it dry around 15 minutes and then spray on heavy wet coats while waiting a half hour between coats and it wouldn't fisheye or orange peel or any of that. Krylon is also very good and some folks consider it the best puff can paint made.
Use lower cost fast evaporating wash laquer thinner for clean up.
