The instructions have a suggested color for each part. I took the headers an blower and threw them into a bleach bath to strip the chrome. Headers were to be steel color and the blower a dark gray. Later that evening I googled the coupe and discovered the real one has chrome headers and blower. Very upsetting. Maybe you saw pics of the restored car or a recreation. I found pics with those items chrome and they were obviously modern photos. I found a couple original period pics where the headers looked flat white (common in those days), and others where they looked like plain unpolished steel.
