Since the weather is holding here in the Detroit, I thought I would try and repaint the white panel that mounts to the display face for the computer on my Tokheim 300.

Since it is just these 2 panels what is a good choice for color and brand of spray bomb to get a nice look for the color. I am leaning toward a semi-gloss, but I would love to hear your thoughts as there are millions of "colors" of white.

Gloss white- The semi gloss won't clean up after awhile.
