There is some paint available from Martin Seynour called REFINISHER’S BLACK, which is the correct sort of smooth but not glossy paint for the inner panels. I usually find it at Napa auto parts stores. The reason that paint is usually gone is that it is about as durable as india ink in that application. The purpose of even painting those parts at the factory was so you didn’t realize that your car wa rusting away right there on the dealer lot. I like the way glossy looks
