    Default Sheen of spoilers

    I'm getting my front and rear spoilers painted black on my orange 240. I like a low sheen finish but the painter called and said after he got started on them they were originally done with black gel coat.

    Could someone who wasn't in diapers in 1972 tell me the sheen as they remember? Gloss, semi-gloss or a satin finish?

    Thanks for any help,
    Cliff

    That's great Mr Blue, thanks!

    I'm going with the satin sheen of the rear finisher.

    Does your's have the flattened out part on the right for the emblem? Mine doesn't but the 240Z emblem fits pretty flat.

    The BRE front spoiler I bought in 1972 for my Z came in black gel coat. I was in the Air Force at the time and after breaking it by hitting deep snow (it doesn't make a very good plow) I had it repaired on Base and painted with the flat black paint used on C130 radar domes. And so it remains today.

    I don't think the BRE spoilers ever had the flat spot - mine doesn't. I suspect that was a Nissan feature for the Fairlady series.

    Tell them you want it to look like a black gel coat when you get it painted they should know what that looks like. It should be a semi-gloss

    Mine doesn't have a flat spot for the emblem. The emblem was removed so the spoiler would fit. But I still have the emblems in case I need the.
