Thank you!Xylan 1424 color chart. Might help finding the correct paint.
You da king, great idea looking at bolt bins!!! The bolt on the far right is similar to what I see routinely on my 78 El Camino, these 2 came from my hood latch and are the best example I have found while working on it. I look forward to the painted version you have from the custom mix. Thanks much for the effort!So, while waiting for the Feature at North Wilkesboro to start, I elected to make a fast pass on the bolt bin and see what came up

So I chose to shoot the underfaces of these bolts first to give you a better idea of what the original color would have been. In pics one and two the color is basically the same but the bolt on the right has had more exposure to crud contamination so it reads as darker. The middle bolt actually reads as blue/green which is not surprising as it may have been a component from my Non G/Body G-Body.
Pics three and four show the heads of the bolts. The one on the left is about as close to cherry as I have been able to locate up to this point. It is not a repaint as the washer color and the head color match.
I do have one more bolt to upload, as soon as its paint dries. This particular specimen has just received a spritz of GM Corporate Engine Blue. This is not an off the shelf, bought it from the local big box auto store color. it was specifically mixed for me to match the blue that GM engines wore back the early 80's and was mixed as a match to the block color in my Non G/Body. It is also the color of the engine in my 85 S/S which is not politically correct for the year of the car but my personal preference. Plus which it betrays leaks and issues more readily than the black did/does,
The shot will be dry by tomorrow and get uploaded sometime after that.
