George,

  Are you referring to the pictures in reply 174 with the tack welds securing the tail panel to the quarter?

Yes that is the picture I was referring to. George

The tailpanels were not full gloss (I don't think anyone argues that), but the blue one was the glossiest tailpanel I've ever seen. Yes, built in the summer.

LOL wonder how many of us looked at that and both commented and took pictures. Know I did!

I finally had my 68 L34 re-painted about three years ago (July build Butternut yellow with black top). Based on this thread and other resources I had the painter spray the tail panel in 70-80% gloss. This was done with a B/C C/C system so most of the flattener was in the clear. I haven't washed and polished it more than ten or twelve times but I think the tail panel has become more glossy. I avoided putting any polish or swirl remover on the black. Frankly just polishing it with a cloth seems to have made it somewhat more glossy. It still has a slight semi gloss look but against the butternut it really stands out. But according to the above posts my car may have had a glossy tail panel sheen since it was built in hot summer. Folks may want to consider starting with a little more satin look to start, with the idea that as it gets cleaned and polished with time it still retains the semi-gloss look your after.
