Does anyone know the brand and paint code(s) for the black taillight panel on a '72-73 'Cuda?

I bought mine from totally auto http://www.totallyautoinc.com/ and if you want, you can even get it in a spray can.

Thx guys, that does help.  I had heard it was called Organasol, and knew Organasol came in a spray can, but I don't like spray paint much.  Never seems to go on evenly for me.  So, Ditzler it is.  Btw, I keep telling myself that I need to buy Herd's book, and then always seem to forget to do it....until something like this comes up again.  :-\

There's at least one critic of pauls book, I'm not in the know on this stuff so can't say, I thought it had a lot of good info, but am no expert.

kcmk,
  That spray paint from totally auto is unbelievable. I've used both the organisol black, and the argent silver. It covers well. You would never know it was spray painted.

I can vouch for that on the argent paint. I used it on my grill, and it came out great! I can't spray bomb anything without getting a run, and this stuff went on great, no runs or uneven areas.

I have and like the Herd book.  There is another one out there (Original Challenger and Barracuda) that I thought was wrong in places but it was me instead.  For instance, did you guys know they didn't make any 340 Challenger R/Ts in 70, RT were all big blocks?  I confirmed that by looking at Galen's white books and sure enough, none are listed.  Even so, books are good sources but not always correct and that's why there are revisions.

Anyway, I mentioned the spray can as an alternative, you can (and I did) get it by the quart or pint from Totally Auto too.
