    What paints are commonly used for the Air Cleaners? Were they gloss or semi-gloss? Photos on the Internet look like semi.

    Thank you, some things I never heard before, but I didn't see anything about the air cleaners

    Wait for his reply. I searched the H.A.M.B and didn't have any luck, not saying there isn't a thread on there somewhere.

    I had mine done by a painter but he isn't around to ask exactly what he used. It is a semi gloss.

      From my research the best I could find is that they were more satin than gloss. I had to make a custom air cleaner for my Poly for hood clearance and I always loved the look of the gold air cleaners so that's what I went with. I found a gold wheel paint that matches really well and granted, this is rattle-can stuff but I wanted to get something on it to start with to see how I liked it. If you're interested I can dig back into the brand and P/N.
