I will be doing the same thing this winter. Altough Ground Up has quite a selection of detail paints I went with Eastwwod as I keep hearing good reports from others whom used their paints. I can't vouch for them yet as I just ordered it. If you want a catalog from them you can call them at 1-800-345-1178.
I used Dulpi-Color General Purpose Semi-Gloss Black. It is about $3.50 a can and is availible at Wal-Mart. It is very close to the original color. I have never had any one tell me it was the wrong shade. The best thing about it is the price and it's avaibile at Wal Mart and other places.
I hit my brackets with Rustoleum 777 ( satin black ) and then satin clear. They look great but too soon to tell how durable. The 777 works mint on fenderwell and firewall too giving a nice velvety color.

Oh, and be careful about prices. I bought some trunk splatter from a resto supplier for $6.95 and found the same stuff at AutoZone for $3.95. Duplicolor is a Zone/Mart item, and Rustoleum is a Home Dopt item.
