RE: Underside of Trunk Lid
I wondered exactly the same thing about my SEC after I purchased it last November. It was on my mind until I saw another W126, with it's trunk open. The finish was EXACTLY like mine: dull flat darkish gray, hinges & all.
The Volvo's I've driven for 34 years have all had car color finished trunk areas, so I was surprised & suspicious at first too.
Cheers with a gray deck lid, MBL
