Attached is a pic of the metal molding that goes across the top of the windshield and contains the visor mounting holes.
What color/sheen black should this be painted?
The ends that are tucked under the rear view mirror bracket appear to have a sheen….just not sure if it’s satin or semi gloss.

The Zazarine restoration guide lists parts 7742776RH and 7742777LH as being painted gloss black.
Not sure I want them that shiny.
I agree with you, my opinion is that gloss black would be too shiny.

Mine are satin black.

Worked on removing the convert top frame today. That piece you show above the embossed piece we have been discussing is pretty rust covered. I will clean up and paint.
What sheen black do you think that piece is? It is the header of the folding top.
While I have you….what sheen black are the frame and bow rails of the convert top?
My top frame has never been painted, I’ll take a picture in the natural light and post it / them. I believe the entire top frame is satin black.
My convertible top frame is satin / 60% gloss black. I would say it’s the same black sheen as the engine compartment, exterior wheel well housing‘s and core support.

Here are a few pictures of the original paint.
