correct paint proceedure for under the bonnet of 59A?

Looking to paint the underside of my 59A hood and trunk lid. What is the correct proceedure? How about the hinges?

Tom: the question of the hinges was discussed last week. The portion closest to the hood is body color as are the nuts and bolts. The portion closest to the hinge pockets are black as well as the nuts and bolts.the underside of the hood is body color.

Neil's book is a great resource.
