    Gloss or Satin?

    I am wondering what the finish would be on a 737's MIP. Is the gray finish glossy or closer to satin?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    It's closer to a satin finish, but with a little more gloss than flat.

    My FDS MIP and the ones in my 727 were flat. No satin. When I was in the USAF working on fighter aircraft, everything had a flat finish also. But to me building my own cockpit, it needs to be what I like. So I used what Michael had said; New Ford Grey and I like the look of it.
