Light grey with a blue-ish tint. Glossy.

Scrape the paint away where the motor ground attaches.

Doh, sorry. You're asking about a Speedster bracket. Not sure about those. Those are like the 356A T1 brackets I believe. The photo above is for the pre-A coupe/cab.

James
Thanks for the paint color response.
I believe the A bracket currently installed is not correct, sure doesn't fit well. I plan on pulling the wiper motor and have Joe Leoni check it. paint the bracket and see if it fits . Hopefully all will be well and the Speedster will have working wipers again.

The best matching color for the bracket shown on James picture is RAL 7031, bluegrey.
I am not sure whether US paint shops have references to the RAL color code system.
