    Chromate treated, Cosmoline spray. Just like it came from the factory.

    Not bad at all... but that cosmoline will come off the moment the fan gets hit with a cleaner or pressure washer.

    For sure. The green tinge will become more yellow. C'est la vie. It's exactly as it would have occurred in 1973, depending on how well the dealer cleaned the car before delivery. Since this car will be driven, it will age in time.

    i wouldn’t be as concerned about the fan as the color of the hardware on the trans or missing cap on injection pump or injection pipe clamp missing. Hope u drive it.

    Any specifics on the process to finish them, Ravi?

    A high temperature Wurth paint I believe. More or less bakes on as they heat up.

    Lol. Work in progress. Missing pieces were being (re)plated. Not sure which trans hardware you are referring to though. Robert pulled off about 12 bolts, screws and clamps to replate because they didn't match his reference cars. Fortunately he's doing all plating in the shop, so it's a one or two day turnaround now.

    Ravi,

    With some due respect that's simply not true. You're totally speculating.

    Not sure I catch your drift Frank. I was just saying that the amount of cosmoline a customer might see depended on how well the dealer cleaned the cosmoline off the components. And in the case of the fan, the hue might change as a consequence. The surface finish on the fan is much rougher than I've seen on some over-restored versions (which look gorgeous in their own way). Willing to be corrected on all counts.
