Great pics Lloyd, thanks for posting.  Curious as to why you decided to change the front two clips from natural or clear zinc noted in your take-off pic early in the thread to the translucent blue at install?

Fair question. I did some further investigation and from other examples I was shown I concluded the front clips (engine compartment) were blue rather than non-colored. Engine heat cycles, the effects of oil as a solvent and environmental elements dissolved the color finish over time.

Got it.....I re-installed mine as zinc to match what you had originally posted.  I'll just spray mine with translucent blue and re-install.  Thanks for clearing that up!
