Factory tailgate hinge and trunnion finish?

I've seen a few threads on this, and maybe it varied by year and factory, but I'd like to know if anyone can verify what's correct for a 1971, if not a 67-72.

Based on the hinges I've got, which are stripped, there are traces of paint on the mounting plate, The arm extensions appear to not have been painted. Do you know what's correct? Are the screws painted?

Can you confirm the trunnions are painted, and are the screws painted as well?


Thank you

Re: Factory tailgate hinge and trunnion finish?

The problem with finding "correct" information for items like this is that, like many things on vehicles this age...items often times have been repainted (& maybe sandblasted during prep), replaced, ect. Having been around several trucks with known, factory condition...I can say this:

From what I've seen, these parts were Zinc plated when made, installed & then painted with the rest of the truck...thus the parts & bolts are painted. One "flaw" that I've seen is that the Zinc appeared to not be prepped & the use of a primer that adhered well to the Zinc was not used, so much of the paint fell off...especially where any contact or rubbing took place.

So Painted & Painted is the word. Lorne
