Hi guys.
I ahve a question as to weather or not the back portion of where the T TOPS rest length wise accross the chrome T-STRIP on the body lays... is it supposed to be semi gloss black or body color? The body shop is telling me that factory is black, and I dont think its right...

This while back area is in question.. on a stock 1977 corvette i believe its body color...

My 82 is body color but it was repainted ones.  Not a great paint job but have no indications that it was anything other than body color.
