Does anyone know what the factory finish was on the two parking brake connectors between the intermediate cable and the two rear cables?  The NOS ones on eBay and the repops are clear zinc.  However, many NOS parts are GM service replacements and do not necessarily have the same finish as the factory originals.

Where the two factory original parking brake cable connectors natural, dark gray phosphate, black phosphate, or clear zinc?  Thanks in advance!

The zinc is not clear, it's silver. ;) In fact it's the same color as zinc!! :P
