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!

If you are able to post some photos of your original clips that show the color variation for future reference that would be helpful.

Mine did as well... the 10D Z28. 531???
I can't believe this is the best photo of one of the clips I can find. I mixed the color to match and repainted the original ones off the car.
