This is what I have. Hope it's close. BTW the springs get striped and repainted next week.

Did the brake bleeders also get painted? First time you bleed the brakes you would have a mess. Black lacquer and brake fluid do not mix.
Just curious.

The Wheel cylinders were installed when the rear was painted so unless they had caps they would have been painted.

I've seen a whole lot of brake drums that looked like they were never painted. Maybe it was a LOS vs NOR thing.

Should be all black. The park brake cables were in place when it was painted.

Is this on 68's too?  Either the paint on mine, wore off, got stripped or were never painted.  Mine were bare metal when I bought it and the "professional" that did stuff on it like undercoat the whole car wouldn't have taken paint off of anything.
