Canvassing opinion, rear hatch should I know be black but I must admit it's one feature I don't like mostly because it looks like one of those cars that people just put a new panel on but don't bother painting.
so the question is can I get away with doing it body colour, or should I stick to originality and paint it black...
Incidentally is the original black a Matt black, or Satin? Pretty sure they weren't a glossy black?

I'm with you on that one, Kevin. I like to see cars 'original' but also think the matt black hatch makes the car look like an unfinished repair job; I have seen several Y10s with body-colour rear hatches, and to my eyes look much smarter.

Series 3 Y10s had a contrasting colour hatch rather than black. I had this dilemma with the Yntegrale which is metallic gold in colour. In the end I went with body colour, but mostly because it also has a tailgate spoiler - if Iíd left that off I would have gone for a metallic black!

I donít go with the Y10 looking unfinished, just ahead of its time. VW Up have black tailgate while the Seat and Skoda versions are body coloured - but the Up is glass covered

But itís your car.....your choice

The original tailgate is satin black. To me it is a signature feature of the car but, as Kevin says, it's your car so your choice also a bit of individuality never did any harm. As far as originality goes it's easily reversed so there's not anything to worry about..

Glad it's not just me that finds it irksome!
Also agree that other companies have now copied the idea, as they have done with most Lancia ideas, eh  Wink

Satin Black not matt, that's interesting and potentially a bit better. I also hate the trend of recent years for matt finished paint, just makes me want to polish them. At least a satin finish has a bit more about it.

Kevin,
I put a new old stock tailgate on my Gtie back about 2006, and like you I wasn't fussed with the matt black, so I had mine painted metallic black and I thought it was a great improvement.
At the time I also did away with the tailgate lock  so it could only be opened from insides, besides being better from a security point of view, I never used to use the key to unlock it anyway.
Trevor can also confirm that with series 2, special models were released that had a plastic? Clear tailgate which had the panel the same as the interior trim, I thought it looked great and really stood out.

That's a good compromise, a nice metallic black will at least look shiny!
I just hate the thought of it looking like an unfinished car, but it was a feature I guess,,

I guess the question is coming down to finding a very dark grey or graphite or something which to your eye "is a colour" rather than "a bare panel"...
