Default 59 rim paint finish - glossy? semi? or flat?

I know my 59 rim color should be black, but am having trouble finding what the finish should be. Does anyone know if they should be glossy, semi gloss, or flat finish?

I plan to sandblast them this weekend and put a coat of primer on them until I can find the correct finish.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks. Jill

Default Glossy

unbuffed Lacquer, the same for the interior and lower parts...{below the beltline} and if two tone the overspray in the wheel housings is correct
