Thanks for that, I thought the black all over except for the thin rasied ridge was correct. Mine currently has just the top textured part in black with the rest in chrome.
A previous owner must have stripped the old worn paint off and decided that the exposed chrome underneath looked good, putting only the textured part back under satin black paint.
That owner may have also added the thin wood veneer's to the horn button tops and a long strip down the centre of the vertical arm betwen the thin chrome highlights.
The overall effect they achieved is really quite pleasing, matching in very nicely with the other woodgrain accents on the dash centre and console...oops, I mean 'Seat Seperator' ...lol
I have another shroud correctly painted so I may leave that one as it is.
What do you mean by "side skirts"?
Those surfaces that are at right angles to the top, receeding towards the dash.
