I am on a quest to clean up my engine bay and my brake booster is uuugggllllyyyy! In a '69 Mk1, standing pedal, non- US 1750 GTV what is the proper booster finish? Black or gold cad?

Thank you

I’m pretty sure they were all cad plated from factory, except if it’s the Lockheed booster, which was black.

Cad plating may no longer be an option in most countries due to environmental impact of cadmium.....so zinc plating tends to be the most environmentally acceptable option with either a yellow chromated or yellow iridite dichromated finish.
