This is the box that bolts into the cowl and holds the master cylinders in my 1960 TR3A. What color should it be? Body color or black?
Also around the battery box seams was there a seam sealer around it from the factory?

X2 - I agree, body color.

Can't say about the seam sealer around the battery box -- mine has it and it was there when I got the car 35 years ago, but do not know for sure it is original.

Thanks for the replies. Back in the late 70's I had the body tub rebuilt at Start You Engines in Beltsville Maryland. The body was dipped at Ready strip and everything except iron/steel was gone. So that info is important to me now that I'm trying to do the best original job as possible. So I'll be asking more.

A name I haven't heard in a long time -- bought a lot of parts from them back in the day. Always had a bit of humor in their catalogs. Some (or at least one) of those guys ended up in a key position at Moss Motors.

Same here. They were close enough that we actually made a number of trips there to buy parts.
