Pictures of Electric Hand & Transmission

I need some color photos of a restored transmission with the Electric Hand or exactly what is what color.  Trying to determine what colors things should be painted as I go through the restoration of my 37’s.

    Bell housing - silver paint, transmission-semi-gloss black, vacuum canister - semi-gloss black. The other major EH assemblies and operating rods are zinc plated.  The transmission cover plate may be zinc plated or silver.  The companion flange is silver paint

    One 37 Hudson expert told me the body of the trans was silver instead of black & I did find some of the original silver on the trans after some scrubbing. 

    Either way, I agree on rods being zinc plated & the vacuum canister being black.  In the end I do like some color changes as the accents look nice vs a “carpet bomb” spraying of everything one color!

    We’ll see if I can find any other colors as I dig into it more.
