68 rs lower bodysill paint
« on: March 01, 2006, 01:09:35 AM »
Did all 68 RS option cars have the lower bodysill painted black. Mine is Y2 butternut yellow. I understand below the lower trim is suppose to be black, what color paint gloss, semi etc and does the paint go into the lower door jam area when you open the door.

Here are a couple photos of an unrestored, original paint 68RS lower body sill. I believe the finish is more gloss than flat, yet not a full gloss.
