CL160 Skid Plate

Post by deuce_7 » Sat Sep 21, 2019 2:24 pm

Know these 1966 CL160 skid plates are hard to find. I’ve acquired an old cracked and rusty one that I’m tidying up with straightening, welding and grinding. It shows no trace of its original finish, mostly covered with surface rust.

Can anyone advise what finish would be correct for a ‘66 CL160 factory skid plate? I know the skid plates were originally a siver-gray color. Was it plating or paint that was applied?

A photo of an original piece would be great, if anyone has a photo.
