#1 Colour of Air Filter Plenum and Heater

Post by chris45 » Tue May 19, 2020 4:15 pm

Hi,
I am 99% sure that the heater box and the air filter plenum were never supplied painted Hammerite light green.
However, before I restore them to the correct colour can I ask for confirmation on this; and also can I ask what is the correct colour for these and the coolant expansion tank (later version) which is also painted Hammerite green on my E-Type (S1.5, 2+2, RHD)?

The Heater Box should be gloss black and the air inlet plenum should be a gently hammered silver with (for a 4.2) a silver cylinder under it. Plenty of example pictures throughout the forum.

Have a read of this judges guide for the 1.5 and have hours of fun putting the rest of the car back to original too 😀
