    Couple questions regarding my Tuxedo. Trying to keep this resto as close to perfectly original as I can so.....on my V6, the alt. mount, paint it engine color or leave it aluminum? How did it come from the factory?
    How about the dip stick? Engine color or black? Handle end of course. Fan. Black? From the factory remember, not preference.
    And for later, and I may give in on this one for the sake of longevity, so whatdaya think, undercoat the underside of the front fenders and tub or not. I'm pretty sure they were painted body color but this unit MIGHT see some salt if I decide to utilize the plow. Thanks all.

    somewhere around here should be an engine pic of a factory V6 that show you what you ask; I hate to use that "search" word; did I say that?
    every alt mount I have ever seen has been aluminum; on engine, factory NOS replacement, etc.
    and the dipstick handles from the factory were engine color IIRC
