Paint Color Question
« on: February 18, 2017, 09:19:14 PM »
I have a 1969 Z-28 that will be going into the paint booth soon and wanted to confirm a few details. I'm assuming that the door and trunk hinges and all bolts should all be painted the same as the body color. And the same goes for the trunk lid catch (part that is attached to the trunk lid). And that the trunk lid striker/latch (part that the lock attaches to) should be left as bare metal. I think the finish is or should be silver zinc plating. Is that correct? Thanks in advance for your help.

You're pretty much correct, except that the latch assembly (mounted in the trunk) also got some body color overspray as well as the later trunk splatter paint...

Thanks.

That is painted on a NOR car. Not painted on a LOS car.
