I would go black..easier to touch up if a wrench slips.

depends on the color of the car. mine is red, so i'm paintin' it black. if it was a cooler color like a blue or grey, it'd be body color.

If you plan on spraying the stuff with a gun, I think the same color as the body but add a little flattening agent to the paint. Same body color but a semi gloss finish. Looks nice.

Flat or Satin black would be my choice,i like the sleeper look,original looking stuff.But if you are building a modern style car body color would be good.

i voted black but ive always used rust-oleum gloss black because it looks good and it seals off rust the best. Ive always applied three coats with a brush and it smoothes out like glass...
