I've never heard a paint spec for it, just a semi-gloss black like a lot of other components. I just used chassis black, in the hopes that it will stand up to brake fluid a bit better.

I was always under the impression that it had to be a yellowish color, or am i totally wrong...

Some covers were gold zinc dichromate plated, but they were also painted black with the master cylinder (although there is a pretty good argument on that.)
