    OK, I went out in the garage and dug out the seat back trim. Only one of the packages had any info in it, and here's the website they direct you to:

    I can't find any current listings on eBay, but the guy I got it from might be able to answer your questions.

    You are right about the difference in finish.
    I had that problem when I repainted mine in the 90's.
    And yes, the best solution was to use polish on them.
    Not sure if I ended using compound, wheel polish or paint polish, but for sure I worked them out to be closer to the 'real' originals.

    Yes, I found the NOS side molding that I had purchased about 2012 to be somewhat less shiny than the original. I actually liked the slightly matte finish, but since the ones on the front fenders that I had restored were shinier, I wanted the new NOS moldings to match. First I gave them a little polish with the swirl remover, and then a wipe down with STP Son of a Gun or equivalent to finish up.
