Side Roofrail Weatherstrip Molding Finish
« on: October 03, 2011, 06:26:26 AM »
Hey guys, What is the correct finish/lustre of the stainless steel roofrail weatherstrip moldings please?

It seems that the repros advertise a "highly polished" finish, yet I thought they were a "brushed" finish like what you would get if you rubbed them with, say an 800 grit paper. My GMs have the brushed fininsh, but after 40 years, who knows if it's just what someone had done to them to hide scratches.
I'm talking about the outboard sides only.  :)



Thank you.

They were polished, although not to a chrome like finish.
The "brushed" look you refer to is from years of weathering.
