I'm not going to open up the proverbial engine paint Pandora's box. . . but I'm reading conflicting info on forum threads, so I'll ask...

If I elect to paint my 26/27 motor Moleskin or some sort of shade of green, what color is the engine mounted ignition coil box and lid.

Green?

Black?

Ladies choice?

I'll hang up and listen.

Any color you want. It's your car, but all the ones I've seen have been black. The fan blade is also black as well as the generator and starter.

OK, black it is.

Thanks to all. I've seen that list of the parts colors on other threads, but just couldn't see where the ignition coil box was listed.

TO THE GARAGE!!!!
