Months ago I did some detailing and minor customizing on 2 of my Datsun 620. On my 160th post I decided to give the matte black some gloss over.

The picture does not do justice but here is a comparison between the 2 de-tampo 620. The one on the right retains the original matte black while the one on the left is treated with gloss clear coat.

Besides the body I added some chrome paint on the headlight and added some black on the front grill.

The tailgate has the silver on lettering and painted the taillights.

The gloss on the left seems more prominent on this picture.

The paint on the truck bed was fading as I was holding on to it while applying clear coat. I decided to leave it as is to show that this is a working truck and has a bit of weathering on it.
