My 91 GM has a LOT of plastic under the hood (not on the engine).

What's a good gloss black paint I can use?

there are plastic specific paints, however, I don't know how well they'd handle under hood temperatures.....

best bet is to lightly sand, prime, then use a high temperature engine paint, IMO..

or, the short route, as mentioned above, Krylon Fusion..
