Exclamation Quarter Window Louvers

I'm about to order the quarter window louvers from American Muscle and i'm trying to figure out if the unpainted ones come with a matte or gloss finish. I have a black car and if the louvers are going to come gloss black or at least close to that then i save $100. I'm not getting ready to pay AM $100 to paint louvers.

Also if the louvers are matte black are there any paints or spray paints that will work good on the louvers.

thanks

looks glossy to me. But a hundred bucks aint to bad compared to paying 20 bucks for the paint can and 15 for clear coat and a sub optimal job. I think 65 bucks would be worth the time and effort and guarantee that if they f up you get another one.

I think its gonna be fine either way. If theyre gloss they will match the paint and if theyre matte they will match the rear louver. Im just gonna go for it unpainted.

I purchased the black painted louvers and the paint matched perfectly. I would suggest calling AM and talk to someone in their customer service dept. They are really nice people and will answer any questions you may have. Also, Chris Rose at AM is a member on this forum. If the search function is working, you can look him up and shoot him a message.
