Do you know if there was a blue mark as well on the pump? I think I remember seeing one on the pump before it got rebuilt.

I've got pictures of multiple red marks on a NOS period pump in a kit

I looked for pics and couldn't find any.  I know there were a couple others.  The pump cleaned up nice with the original marks, the insides were rebuilt and reassembled.  This is from the pace car coupe I restored, believe scheduled build date was 29D, Dearborn (obviously).

Are the air cleaner stickers correct?  I was told not to se the front sticker, and the autolite sticker on side.  Almost same built time.

Finally got the car aligned 5 months after the MCA show in Tucson. I'm sure the before numbers are not pretty.

So while I had the transmission out I took the opportunity to clean more of the undercarriage. Found a spot that was missed when they painted the bottom and some red oxide peeking through near where the transmission is. The color of the undercarriage is very interesting. When I shine a light to it, it almost looks like a dark olive green color. Could be the mixture. I do need to get some paint matched up though as some of it bubbled up and peeled of where the emergency parking brake cables attach. Not sure what that was about.

Could be sealer gray primer, which was typically the final coat before paint.

I think you may have an area that has a combination of oversprays coming together producing what your seeing. The color is additionally enhanced since its a byproduct of a misting.

I have that on one of my cars where the exterior color misted over the base batch color produces almost a maroon in one area while almost a purple in another (different amounts of overspray and transparency through to the base) but if you remove the over coat its the same base as other areas

Since I had the driveshaft out with the transmission rebuild, finally got around to putting the numbers back on the driveshaft.

So did some more cleaning underneath the car. I also went to Home Depot and got some color samples to see what best matches. Found a bear paint called black mocha that is very similar. There is also some honey gold speckles as well along with black towards the edge from the pinch weld. Some different lighting below with a drop light and my phone light.

Thanks for sharing.

Start using cardboard or padding on your jack stands so they don't mark up/remove paint.

+1 They do make plastic covers for those cast style jack stands. Still can leave a mark if not careful but allot better IMHO than the steel only. Use to use carpet samples that were cut in half in the old days

Think Harbor freight had them at $9 a pr
