Hi Bill,

The shocks were never painted silver. On a '67 BJ8 the shocks were usually 
bare aluminum bodies with black phosphate arms (dull black). A swipe of 
medium brown and a swipe of ivory white paint (applied with a small brush 
roughly 1/2" wide) was across the top of the shock body at the filler plug 
location. These sloppy paint swipes were paint codes used by Armstrong for 
the BJ8 application.
