ss leaf spring color
« on: October 30, 2008, 09:54:39 AM »
 I am getting ready to have my original 68, 5 leaf, SS rear springs,  sandblasted so I can re-paint them.  They have the 1 x 1 1/2 dimple at the end of each spring and I was wondering what color they originally were. I took them apart and in between the leafs they were painted semi gloss not the gray or natural like I normally see.  Also they were not held together with 3 rivited bands  but with 3 crimped bands, like you see in shipping.
