    I would like to refinish my hard top similar to what came from the factory. The texture is still in pretty good shape, but the paint is starting to flake off and it has a couple of joints the need to be sealed. What was the paint like when it was new? Was it flat, semi-gloss or what?

    The factory paint was a semi gloss or flat I think. I dont remember exactly. Most likely a semi gloss.

    Most where semi gloss or semi flat, one of the two. BUT I have seen some that matched the gloss paint of the truck exactly. Headbanger's truck is a 90(I think) and it has this gloss paint that I'm talking about.

    A PM to Headbanger may answer my question. His first pic in his album shows the top with a very high gloss finish. I may be wrong, but the rest of the pics look like semi gloss.
