65 hood latch and attaching bolts both black or just the latch?

Still can't figure out where 65 latches have 3 attaching bolts to the hood and 66 has 2?

The attaching bolts are phosphate and oil. The latch support plate is semi-gloss black. The latch is phosphate.

'65 latch is attached to the support plate with 3 bolts, '66 has 2 bolts. Most likely a cost savings redesign.

Can someone authiticate? I believe the top plate that sits horizontally is also black, not natural, but I can very well be wrong. I found traces of black paint on my 1966. I suppose 65/66 may be different as well...just curious.

The top plates were black. Who indicated they were natural?

If you're referring to my picture, it is black. It may look natural due to glare.
