1968 Hood pin bracket assembly finish
« on: June 13, 2018, 09:45:48 PM »
Did the entire hood pin bracket assembly ( bracket, Dzus wire, and steel rivets) come painted semi-gloss black as a complete unit or was just the bracket painted?

Thank you,

Jim

Jim ,that would make it too easy to restore if all painted. ;)  The bracket was painted semi gloss black . The Dzus wire and steel rivet was added after painting .

Thank you. The only original assemblies I have seen looked almost monochromatic from age.
