The professional body shops use a product called Trim Black. It is a semi gloss black paint especially formulated for black trim on any car. You can get it at any body shop supply.

Wick Humble's How to Restore Your Datsun Z-Car says the following:
A good match for the original paint is Ditzler Duracryl DDL2862 Argent with quite a bit of suede additive. The formula is:

1 Pint DDL

200 units DX265

300 units DX264

thin 100 - 150% and spray on fairly dry. Regulate air to the high side. Swirl paint around in cup constantly to help keep texture additives in suspension. Maintain spray gun distance and overlap coverage on final coat, or variations in surface texture may be unacceptable. This paint should have no gloss so don't expect any.

I highly recommend this book to everyone. It is invaluable. btw, I painted my panel the same as the body and it looks great that way too. If you want original, I recommend the above.
