Charles: As an MCA Judge, perhaps you can shed some light on the varying degrees of gloss/lack of. on different components. Stamped steel pieces like those brackets, for example, have more gloss than aprons. We've probably all seen new FORD bumper brackets, and some are shiny. An engine cmpt that is ALL 1613 or whatever can be pretty boring, if not unattractive. Opinion. Castings/forgings take on a different level, also. Would like to hear more on the subject ie what's dipped, etc. :)

As a general rule, most anything that didnt have any moving parts was dipped. This of course is not always 100%.

In concours, we don't get into shades of black too much. That is more reserved for the Thoroughbred class. There should be contrasts between parts such as the horns and engine bay, radiator, shock caps, cowl braces, etc...
