When this procedure was taped out at the factory it was done fast. So to reproduce correctly do it fast with little care of how it turns out.

Here's another discussion on the topic.

Here's an older one from our site.

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=2458.0

There are several exceptional, original paint survivors with glossy rear panels. Why aren't there any satin survivors?







Jerry states in that thread that eggshell has more gloss than satin. Industry standards dictate satin has more gloss than eggshell which contradicts his data. The gloss level of unbuffed lacquer exceeds an eggshell finish. I wonder how many people on this site stock various sheens of black, have sprayed it and other products daily or weekly for decades, stock flattening agent, or have shot lacquer over the years. Jobbers and shops have decks that dictate gloss levels, common for those who do this every day. Most who are not professionals commonly misuse paint terminology, which only adds to the confusion.

Exactly. Those with little exposure to survivors or old cars in general expect these cars to look like late model cars. I'm restoring a 67 for someone and the RH side of the tailpanel was cracked when stamped, poorly aligned with the quarter from the factory, and poorly welded. Assembly line sloppiness was not uncommon. It was considered transportation, not a work of art or showcar.

If  you don't have anything constructive to offer, how about just moving on to another thread? Some of us know we don't know everything about 1st gens and still like to discuss differences of opinions on things that matter to us.

There's a difference between seeing a reflection and seeing a reflection in full-gloss paint.
Full-gloss is closer to a mirror. Look at a pic of a black full-gloss tailpanel to see the difference.
