[concours] Thanks to all responders, mud shield color

I want to thank everyone who responded to my question about the color of
the mud shields. It turns out that on page 63 of Matthew L. Stone’s book
“Jaguar E-Type” shows a full page color picture of the E-Type
production line. It is very clear that the yellow 2 plus 2 in the
foreground has the front of the outer sill in body color and the mud
shields are indeed black.

However several people also said the aluminum rock shields were also
painted black. I have some information that they were unpainted, but I
do not know for which years. Anyone have any information on when any
changes may have taken place?

TIA Lauren
