    87 GN Paint Questions

    Sign up to remove this ad
    Did GM use lacquer or another type of paint on the 87 GN?

    Also, were the headlight bezels and bumper filler panels done in flat, satin or gloss black?

    Thanks for your help.

    The headlight bezels are flat black, the bumper fillers are gloss black.

    Thanks for the help. Any idea as to if the paint was lacquer or enamel?

    I'm not sure but have been told that it is lacquer. All of the GNs and T-Types had crappy paint jobs from the factory. My GN still has the original paint but getting it redone is high on my wish list.

    Original paint is lacquer; trim is satin finish, not actual flat
