<VV> Bad paint product warning

As I told Grant in a private email - I learned something here.
I've got six carbs that I just rebuilt on the table next to me as I type this along with a seventh which is nearly completed.  I do detect a slight color variation between tops and bottoms on a few (not all) of them now that I look more closely, but nothing as pronounced as the carbs I've seen from Grant.  Up until now, I just figured that he was making the tops that gold color as sort of a signature that the carbs had been rebuilt by him.

Later, JR

I have about 50 or so 'Vair carbs and about half of them have that 
same gold finish on the tops.  That includes the ones on my '60 which 
are as gold'ish as a Quadrajet.
