I just want to double check the original finish for certain items before I have them plated. I will reference numbers on some diagrams and state yellow or silver finish.
3 - Striker - Yellow *
4 - Dovetail - Silver
5 - Side striker - Silver
7 - Striker assembly - Yellow *
9 - Hatch hinges - Painted **
Top left - Dovetail - Silver
Bottom left - Stopper - Silver
Right - Striker - Silver
Not pictured - Lock mechanism - Silver ***
* Seems like all visible door and hatch components were finished with silver zinc so I'm just wondering if the hatch striker and striker assembly (lock) should be silver as well. I've seen a few images showing it with a yellow finish but this could be done by owners restoring their cars. It doesn't make sense for these components to be yellow with all others finished in silver.
** I've read somewhere that the hatch hinges were mounted to the car and then painted together which is why the bolts are the body colour as well. I'm wondering if they were zinc coated underneath to protect the sections where the paint could not reach. Either way, I'll be zinc plating mine prior to painting.
*** I finished my door lock mechanism in yellow which I believe is incorrect so I'll have to refinish it. I've seen a few photos now of the door sides showing the mechanism and they're mostly silver.
Oh the joys...
