I have done a lot of this also. The Wurth satin black is great stuff. I found my local dealer and he drops it off at my place for AU$18/ can. The quality is in the paint but also in the nozzle and spray pattern. No spatter and fine mist. For heat affected areas the black calliper paint is good and has a harder surface. A hitemp Primer is important too. Eastwood special Wheel Paint was great for the wheels. Excellent quality.Thanks Pinshaw, yeah enjoying taking some time cleaning etc as I strip. I am finding I remove a lot of components in the afternoon and then spend the next morning doing some work on them before I box them and get on with some more disassembly after lunch. I am certainly not getting everything perfect before I put it into storage, but I know that in 6 months, or a year, or 5 years when I unpack these boxes every time I find an Item that is ready to go straight onto the car it will be like Christmas!
I have got a blasting cabinet and it is great, did some components today. From this:

Painted this lot this late afternoon as well. BTW can anyone recommend a semi-gloss or satin black spray can for painting these sort of components? I have been using some Duplicolour Brake Caliper Paint I happened to have which seems to work OK but I will need to get more paint to paint bigger things like propshaft (which I removed yeaterday!) fuel tank etc. and I want to do it right. Been looking at Eastwood Extreme Chassis Black which is supposed to be good. It is not readily available in NZ but have found one supplier who has it at $40 a can. I haven’t really looked into powder coating.
And yes still leaning towards Dutch Blu/beige interior.
Thanks. Yes I stumbled onto this post a few months ago, it is a great resource. This was where I discovered that my car’s existing colour combination of Dark Blue (Olandese Blu) with Tan Or “Pigskin” interior was not a factory combination, which is a shame because I rather like it.I know you're a fair way from putting paint on but have a look at this post. It has the contemporary colour range (I think the original document is from Alfa).

The colour representation isn't the best but if you see one you like hit it up on the internet and get some better examples.
for example, there is blue and then there is blue! Some great shades in there.
Also has the interior trim.
