I believe the hinge is plastic; part of the door - SS has a rebuild
kit and I believe there is a gasket to seal the door.
There is a drain tube that goes to the firewall and a duckbill drain
grommet. They end at the firewall.
Defrost vents are just black.
License plate illumination bracket - mine is body color
Windshield frame - body color
Hood catch - natural - I believe mine has a zinc coating
Most original windshield washer bottles have discolored - nothing wrong with
that - if you want a new one SS has them
As long as your bottle fits into the bottle holder and does not leak its
good. Bottle holder is painted a light blue.
Washer pump has 2 ports
Color wire diagram - I believe CAT had one but you need to be a member to
TigersUnited.com has wire diagrams - not sure if they are in color.
