#1 4.2 rad gloss or mat

Post by neal herridge » Sat Apr 01, 2017 4:35 pm

Just having my series 1 4.2 rad re cored & was asked do I want it finished in mat or gloss black.
Have seen both on cars & was wondering which is correct.
Thanks Neal.

Matt sheds heat more efficiently but a semi-gloss is correct - neither shiny nor totally matt.
