How shiny is shiny enough?

I'm about to list my '69 Safai for sale and it's been redone from the subfloor up. I've polished it as much as I can handle and wonder if it will help me get (some) of my $$ back out of restoration.

Slow burn?

I've seen the 40 amp fuses, but that don't indicate slow burning. The only ones I see are "fast acting". Will that work the same? Thanks!

Looks like the clear coat is still there. How on Gods green earth I don't know because I have spent many weekends using many products. Will try Saran next over Citristrip.
