Hubert_25-25 Posted June 25, 2015 Share Posted June 25, 2015 Is this aluminum strip between the hood and cowl supposed to be bare aluminum or body color? I have seen it both ways. My car looks to have original paint. This part also has black under the cloth cording that cushions the hood. You can see where the cord is broken, and the black shows under it. The green starts just past the cord on the cowl side. I do not see any primer under the green though. I know that they did not use tape at the factory. Maybe someone just wanted to make this part body color at a later date. Then again, the black firewall had to have a parting line somewhere. It would be nice to get a picture of this aluminum piece to see if it should have no paint on it at all? If there were no paint on this, even a clear finish, it would be a pain to keep up with regarding oxidation. Any comments on originality and the path you would take forward are appreciated.
