Need HELP! I'm rebuilding a '57 IMPERIAL 392 hemi engine. It should be just like when it left the factory in '57. All the original bolts that I'm going to use are rusty/oily/just dirty. What kind of / colored coating did the factory use? OK, some bolts, like manifold bolts are obviously painted (silver)like the engine, but how about all the generator / ps pump / oil pan / fan / carburetor etc etc . . And what colors are the road draft tube / generator (BLACK?) / ps pump / pulleys etc . How about other bolts and nut. Chassis/sheetmetal etc. Thanks, Mika
