    what is the correct color for the instrument cluster, i know it's black but is it

    1. Satin Black
    2. Gloss Black
    3. Flat Black
    4. Semi Gloss Black
    5. too dirty to see Black

    I'm going to try and restore my cluster, just wanted to get the correct color.

    thanks,

    ARQ.

    The factory brochures I've seen make it seem like a semi-gloss or satin-type finish....

    Too glossy, and I think you'll be hating life with all the glare on a sunny day. Go too flat, and it will just look "blah"....

    Hardly scientific, but I think when it comes to the color/shine you'll know it when you see it. :wink1:
