On my 65, Plastikote T-3 Hot Rod Black was pretty much a perfect match for the original semi gloss black interior. I was real happy with how it turned out.

IMO, metal dashes should be FULL GLOSS.

yes full gloss is nice but it puts a crazy bad glare on the windshield when the sun beats down on it.

Yes.

Being careful applying, it flowed out very nice too. It was very hard to tell the finished job apart from a low mile original twin car with black interior.
