malc Chevrolet never bothered to paint the runners under my front seats either.

mmerlinn Think about it. WHY would a manufacturer spend the money to paint something that will never be seen and that does not have a corrosion issue?

They can't sell it for more money. No buyer is going to crawl under the car to look at the paint job before buying a car. So, it would not be a selling point.

rick 427 No auto manufacturers painted their aluminum transmissions.Paint tends to make a transmission[or any aluminum product] operate at a bit warmer level,as it hinders the aluminum's natural ability to cool. Same theory applies to radiators,heads,external coolers,etc.You can paint it,lots of people do,it's a preference thing.

What was the original color for the auto trans in a 68 Pontiac
Tempest? Was it painted or bare metal? Does anyone know for sure?
