Can you take a really good shot of each complete muffler square on, as well as another shot of the stamped numbers close up, straight on?

No, not dipped, just dripping with paint. It was painted along with the engine and exhaust manifolds, being suspended a bit in mid air away from the high heat it didn't durn off like all the paint surrounding it.

Any chance some of your suspension parts were painted over in black, as if to detail them? What color (black paint or natural metal) are the following:

Tie rod sleeves
pitman arm
idler arm
tie rod ends
strut rods
upper a-arms
lower control arms
steering box

The torque converter, flex plate, and bolt all look to be painted light blue.

Is that the same light blue engine color? I've recently seen something similar to this on a 69 340.

Was the motor painted with the torque coverter installed?

Just wondering how the torque got installed in order of the engine assembly operations.

I have talked to all owners & no one at any time painted or touched-up anything.....and...I have found no evidence that they were wrong...phenomenal car that's had phenomenal care.

Tie rod sleeves Natural

Yes, it is the same color as engine which was standard fare...It had to be painted prior to installation.....

Could you get this spray pattern below if you painted the flex plate and torque converter installed.

Scott I made a mistake on the tie rod sleeves, they were painted black, sleeves only!

Let me be the first to thank you Dmoore for posting the pics on these low mileage, survivor cars, personally i savor every detail. I have a question on the ceramic resistor on the wiper motor, was that painted over by the factory or is that undercoating? Thanks again..




The complete wiper motor assy was painted on this particular car to include the resistor and the copper & brass I.D. tags unlike the yellow & white cars. I'm not sure why at this point...Note the wide undercoat treatment around the blower motor/wiper holes.

Asking.

In your picture the torque converter, flex plate, and bolt are all blue.

Did that get painted blue at the same time? I'd think that would mean it was installed on the engine. But was there a different process? Did that not actually get painted together?

Steve, I can only guess the flex plate & converter were shot after being installed on the engine...would make more sense...explains why there was spotty coverage in some area's.....
