Hello guys! a doubt here , can anyone tell if in series 1 that piece that holds the hood that has a spring inside, if it had any period or year that the upper part of the fitting was golden , like polished brass ?
I'm replacing my Series 1 107 1956 ones, and I was in doubt as to whether I'd order galvanizing and polishing the golden head.

Be careful getting them galvanised tey can end up as a solid block
From my observations of vehicles ive owned 54 /55 had some kind of brass plating 56 had galvanised the tubular bit always galvanised (not hot dipped) but so many bits get swapped around who knows?
