    I have had my 71 since I was 15, I am now 33. It has gone through its periods of extended rest, as will happen with life. But I am currently throwing a little TLC back into it and getting it looking good again. Here's a couple years back when I got it all shined up.

    Hello I am restoring a '71 Malibu 350 Convertible. It's time to paint the framework of the convertible top. I want to know what type of black it is supposed to be. I am fairly sure it was not gloss black or flat black. So, the question is... should it be semi-gloss (a.k.a. 60 degree black...
