What color is the hood latch pin/washer/nut?

What color is the hood safety catch and 2 bolts?

I was getting the latch assembly confused w/this from an earlier post. My bad.

Yep. The original gold dichromate plating on the hood pins had a washed out dull gold look. Hard to replicate. I usually like to use NOS hood pins on concours restorations.

Keep an eye on ebay or get a copy of Hemming's and start calling NOS parts dealers. They usually run about $25-50.
