What is the accepted finish for the interior windshield header rail for the convertible? I have two pieces from cars built about the same time and it appears that one has a satin flash chrome finish and the other may be painted with some kind of metalized paint. What would be considered correct, and if plated, any suggestions for a shop who can reproduce the finish?

I can't speak to '71s, but '69s and '70s were an industrial chrome, looked like a satin silver finish.
Its not a frequently done finish, a lot of people simply sand them and paint them silver, which doesn't last anywhere near as well.

That sounds the same as the '71 finish. Do you have any idea of where I could get that plating done?
