On interior painted items like the steering column, lower dash, and doors, what percent of gloss did the factory use for black interiors?



Thanks!

I had some black interior paint mixed once for a '66 fastback I restored. I went through several batches with various gloss levels before finally settling at 10-15%.

So you know where I'm comming from...experience. Was new product engineer at GE Medical Systems for over 20 years. Appearance/finish of the products was generally next after function. We had labs to evaluate color and gloss in various lights.

I agree with the previous estimate of 15% gloss.
