Semi gloss, which is half way between gloss and satin. If you can't source semi-gloss go for Satin.

You can get quite a nice shiney-but-not-glossy effect if you use satin paint and then rub it down with Solvol Autosol. I can't say if it's technically the correct look, but it seems OK on mine.

Thanks for the info on original finish as I had seen gloss and satin finish on different cars.

Thank you Adam
