I am looking at the old photos of my 69 pace car before any restoration was done. My DS wire loom bracket is definitely not orange. It looks either black or dark metal grey colored. Not to say it couldn't have been changed out, but is it possible that not all of these brackets were orange? It is currently semi-gloss black and when I repainted all of my brackets way back when I redid my car, I didn't refer to any chart. I painted the part the color it was when taken off the vehicle. If it makes any difference, I didn't have the transmission kickdown bracket for the kickdown cable. Instead, I had the linkages for the powerglide kickdown. Would that have made any difference?
Also, what color are the engine lift brackets supposed to be. Mine were still on my car and in my old photos they look like they were bare metal.
I wish I took more photos at the time, but I didn't intend on redoing the car when I did. I pulled the car into my garage to change out a bad water pump and the next thing I knew, the front end was off, the engine was out and the sub frame was in the back of my truck ready for a trip to the sand blasters. I still should have taken a bunch of photos, but this was at a time when this type of documentation wasn't considered a big deal and also when you still had to buy film for your camera.
