It is good to recall that these were production line vehicles. The bare fenders were dipped in black primer and baked. They were then mounted in pairs on a fixture and as they passed by workers they were sprayed body color. The inner fenders were not masked on any original car I have seen. The painfully correct finish is overspray on black. But for show, that does not look so nice. Better semigloss black.
