Can anybody tell me the correct colour/plating for hood hinges, hood latch, hood striker & mounting plate for a Canadian built 67. Thanks.

I believe these should be:

Dark Gray Posphospate Plating. Cross between gray Zinc and Black Mangnese. Should be a dark gray with little specs that shine in the sun.

I know this is what the 68's and up have.

Hello?Any info on the door hinges?
My orignal 66 had the door hinges painted body color. The strikers are aluminum with a corrosion preventive plating from GM. But after 40 years they usually look corroded. The company that I used could not do the strikers that bolt to the jams because they said the aluminum would dissolve. I just polished them.
