Paint code plate
« on: September 23, 2021, 19:56:30 »
Is the paint code plate on the relay bracket painted then attached with chrome screws, or painted on the car including the screws?

Thanks!

I think that has been the consensus here on the Forum so far.

I also heard from several restorers in Poland that they found bear/rusty metal under this plate when they removed it during cars restoration on many occasions.
