[E-Type] Show of hands please

I understand that the firewall blanking plates on some E types were
black and some were body colored. I can’t tell which mine were so
I thought I’d take a poll before busting out the paint gun.

How many people have cars with body colored blanking plates?

How many people have cars with black blanking plates?

Are the black ones gloss or semi-gloss?

When you respond please indicate the year of your car. Thanks for
your participation.–

AFAIK, on early Jags (my '63 is original), they’re neither: they
were a galvanized-type of situation. Not sure if that carried
through, but I think it did.–

When you say silver is that cadmium/zinc plated or painted silver?–

Herb:

My '69 ots, owned since 1972, has silver coloured blanking plates.
Sort of a gavanized finish.

Cheers,

Herb,
If you are referring to the round plates on the vertical surface that
were on the 3,8’s and very early 4.2’s, they were black. The brake/
clutch and accelerator were cad plated or something similar.

Herb,
Mine are neither body color or black, they’re unpainted.

I understand that the firewall blanking plates on some E types were
black and some were body colored. I can’t tell which mine were so
I thought I’d take a poll before busting out the paint gun.

How many people have cars with body colored blanking plates?

Are the black ones gloss or semi-gloss?

In reply to a message from Herb22 sent Wed 14 May 2008:

The polls are closed. Most responded that I was mistaken on both
counts. The concensus is that the blanking plates should be a
silvery grey. Definitely not black. Many opinions on what caused
the silvery grey appearance.

I mis-read the judging standards according to which the blanking
plates can be either body colored or cad plated. No one responded
that theirs were originally body colored. I think I’ll plate mine
in zinc. Being a heavy metal cadmium is hard to get and dulls
faster than zink.

Thanks to all contributors.–

Plated, indeed.

Cad I think, but bright zinc plate (as opposed to galvanised
finish) would probably look right once it dulled a little. Parking
in a coastal location or the centre of a big city would probably do
that in a week :-)–
