PS pump/bracket factory finish
#1
What is the factory original finish for the pump? How about it's mounting bracket?

Not going concourse, but would like it to look as original as possible.

Matte black on both the pump and bracket. The concourse judging rules state natural on the bracket but both C9ZX and I have several examples of the matte black to reference against.

Stop the presses! I was sniffing to many paint fumes last night from rust bulleting the inside of the cowl. shrug2

The bracket should be natural and the rules state matte black. Please tell me you haven't painted it because of me. If you have, I owe you a couple of beers. Sorry for my mix up and I will check my photos better next time.

Thanks for following up in the PM and this thread. It is mostly stripped back to "natural" at this point. I am going to try to find some dull dark grey paint locally to replicate it, and keep it from rusting.

Glad I caught you before painting. I had that hollow feeling in the bottom of my stomach that I had skrewed up at your expense. If I get it wrong I can hit my head against the wall and then fix it. I cause someone else to skrew up I still hit my head against the wall I just cant fix it. Glad it worked out.
