[concours] Real Plinth finish

Can anyone tell me the finish on the stainless steel panel between the tail
lights on a series II E-type? Mine has a kind of brushed finish, but I saw
one yesterday that is almost a mirror finish.

John,

My original was severely dented up and was quite oxyidized but not
brushed…no lines showing. The replacement is from Special Interests and is
quite shiny but not chromed. I feel certain it will oxidize to a more dull
finish with time.

I replaced my panel when I restored my 69 2+2 and the panel that came off was
brushed stainless and the new panel that I ordered was brushed stainless. I
think someone is “personalizing” their car. All of the other Series II 2+2’s
that I have seen have the brushed stainless panel.
