I want to purchase a console shifter plate for the interior of my '95 C4 with a 6-speed, manual transmission.  All of the parts houses I have tried have the part, but it has a very matte finish.  My Vette has a "sheen".  I have tried Mid-America, Eckler's, Corvette Central, GM, and Volunteer with no luck.  If anyone has any suggestions, it would be appreciated.

Try Zip Corvette.  I believe they may have it.

My 87 C4 is an automatic, and the shift console looked really ratty.  I took it out, cleaned the plastic window, and painted the rest of the console with Krylon black (for plastic).  Looks really nice now.

Thanks for the reply.  I have a question, however.  How does the "painted" portion of you console compare to the finish of the rest of the console?  On the '95, the shifter cover plate is only one part of the console, with the remainder of the console having the "sheen" I described.

I believe that MAM sell a clear coat that you can use to get the sheen that you want.
