BD.2228 & 2229
I sandblasted mine today, and I find under the non-original and original paint layers, a copper color. It looks like plating to me. There is some small remnant of silver color over it.
To the question for today… Were these things plated?
I thought they were installed and the doors aligned before the body received any painting at all, and these would have been painted over.
Any other observations?
