Everyday Performance LLC has been making strides in our efforts to attain an "OEM" look with our Zinc Chromate Quadrajet finishes. Concensus seemed to be that a lighter yellow/gold color looked "more OEM" Here is what we have come up with now, on a 1971 455 Stage1 carb 7041242 (replacement carb date 0226) Let me know what you think of the finish on the main castings. Questions I have: Too light? Too dark? Does it need more red/green iridescence or do you prefer it minimal like in the pics? Thanks for any feedback.
