My steering wheel had been brush painted black so I’ve stripped it all off. Should it be black or a slightly off black colour?

Mine was a flat black, might have been matt at some time but had received some sort of dressing on it, matt would be good, less reflections from it

SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

A sort of satin black rings a bell - not gloss and not really matt?
