I am restoring a 1956 Dodge Custom Royal sedan. That is to say a body shop is doing the rust repairs for me. This car had already had "repairs" started when I bought it. A rust repair has now been re done on the rear window qtr panel ( I think that is what it is called). As this part of the car was covered in filler and primer when i bought it, I have know been asked by the repairer if this panel was left raw as it is now ( please see photo) when it left the factory or if it needs some lead to dress it up. As it is covered by a stainless trim piece i do not know what the factory finish was. Both sides have had the same issue so i have no reference point.Can anybody help with information or a photo?
