C-4 Dip Stick
« on: August 30, 2009, 05:38:29 PM »
Is the transmission dipstick handle for a '68 C-4 bare steel or was it plated?

Think you'll have to look at the lower section of one that has been protected from the elements- believe it was treated the same above as below.

Since  we don't see (well I don't) many of the handles rusty IMHO it must have been plated with something. Now to figure out if it was zinc or cad
