 I'm curious if the 67 owners who are restoring their cars are reapplying the trim tag white-out if, it was on there originally.
I've been to a coupe of local shows already and have not seen one white tag though one owner said it was there originally but he didn't like the way it stood out so he left it black. He has done an excellent job restoring the car and IMO, should have reapplied the white-out. Probably one of the more accurate restorations I have seen in a while (next to mine  ;)  ).

I think it looks like crap. Have no idea what the factory was thinking when they did that.

I did.  And yes it looks like crap but so did the originals..  At least it's somewhat consistent..

I believe mine was white from the factory, based on removing multiple layers of paint.  It's black now, and will PROBABLY stay that way.
