i am painting the black sections on my VK berlina on the top half of the doors (around the windows) and im not sure if the original colour was a gloss black or a satin/matt black.
could somebody please tell me what type the colour is and the name of it?

Cheers...
Scott

Cool. You guys have got me another thing to do. I remember seeing my metal surrounding fading, so if it comes up that good, I'll need to do it!

Cheers,
Craig.

Apparently Holden used Tuxedo Black, gloss for the black trimmings on the SL/E/Calais models. The trimmings are the window surrounds, panel where the tailights sit in.
And yup i agree, all VB-VLs look great with the window surrounds black, all should of been factory like that.
