Question for the originality experts. I am well aware of the many discussions about red paint/wash on many of the bolts, though I’m not sure there has been a conclusion regarding how and why the red was applied. My question, though, is directed at what appears to be similar red coloring on many of the steering and suspension components. On my early OTS (6708XX) there is very obvious red paint that appears to be quite original on the upper A-arms and bolts, steering idler arm and less obvious traces on some other parts. What I don’t know is whether this red paint is a primer that has been exposed by degradation of the finish coat, or if it was visible from the factory. Does anyone have any insight?
