What about if your car is gloss black?
Is it still "blacked out"?

Original black cars didnt get the semi gloss tail panel treatement from my understanding.

Ah, but a member of this forum has an original paint black car and you can see the paintline for the black tailpanel.

Ah, but was it gloss body color or semi gloss?
I assume semi gloss, otherwise why the paintline.
If that's true, then that car would seem to be an 'odd one out'

One thing I have learned over the years is there are always exeptions to the rules.
