I'm restoring my engine compartment - does anyone know what color the battery tray should be - body color?  black?  Can't seem to find this info anywhere.  Thanks.

Body color most likely as they did in 69 - Not sure if they blacked them out after like on some e-bodies but I doubt it.

Okay, I appreciate everyone's help with the battery tray - couple more questions.  The braces for the battery tray - color?  Black or body color? 

And does anyone have any suggestions on the best procedure and paint to get a correct, black wrinkle finish on original 426 hemi valve covers?  Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.
