Should A series Carrera GS/GT bumper deco be polished or somewhat dull (given fine horizontal scratches to create such an effect)?

They just got dull over time but never had a dull, or matte look applied in any way. Get out that tube of Simichrome and get to work...

Hi Pete, Does seem to be my old GT coupe, now in the very capable hands of the folks at Road Scholars. I don't love the white roundels, which personally I can do without. Blackened exhaust does seem to speak to some serious exercise, a laudable, and no doubt enjoyable experience for the party behind the wheel. Regrettably, I didn't get as much time in it as I did with my RSK, which was a never to be forgotten part of my Porsche life.

Anyone know where I could purchase this trim? I really like the clean look and want to convert my 63B T6 Coupe.

I believe that the aluminum GT bumper trim was originally extruded and replacements should therefore be a slightly dull finish, nor polished. However, the 'norm' today is to polish the trim to almost a chrome appearance, it is your car and nobody can criticize what you decide to do. I seriously doubt that the factory polished the original trim.

I had 50 sets of the GT trim pieces made many years ago and I do have one set left. I also have the narrow trim pieces which are attached to the body, just above the bumper. Contact me at tomlynns@aol.com if you are interested. I do have several bumper trim pieces with a 'V' notch in the center for 1950 only.
Tom :D
