Jim, good question. No-one has ever asked me before. Mine has black vinyl
on the inside and the outside is painted body color (white for me). (
Caution my car was repainted about 10 years ago -- BUT the inner black vinyl
and the edging is correct, which leads me to think that they put it back
correctly. As far as I can remember it was always white. Also, Piggot shows
several pictures where the outside looks as if it were painted body color.
Let me know if you get anything different on this. Cheers.
