I understand the xl's heater plenum box is painted the same color as the interior.
My interior is black so do i paint it flat black or gloss black? Did not think of this before and i am ready to put plenum back in now.

I would paint it neither of those 2. I would go with SEMI gloss. M2C.

To me the flat wouldnt 'shine' enough (and look icky/odd), and the gloss would 'shine' to much, (be shiny in the wrong place).

Maybe someone else has the actual knowledge tho....

On the XL cars the heater box is "dyed" the same color as the rest of the interior. On the Galaxie 500 the box is left the natural color of the box, a black flat color.
