That portion of the hood would have been painted a satin black when it left the factory.

Not true guys, my 85 is all original and that section is red. I don't like it as much as the newer ones, but its what it came with.

I will probably repaint mine someday and will paint it like the later ones as I think they look better. Just wanted to let you know what is factory. Please take pics as you work on it, we like to see lots of pics around here!!

:confusion-confused:

Looking at the 1985 Sales Brochure in our "Manuals" section they all appear to have black paint on the ribbed area.

I painted my 312-8 Just a little different. It is a worker and some parts were already missing head lights and plastic inserts. So I have a blind 312.

Those red hoods like Randy posted are factory paint jobs and came with the different decals. Think they may have had Briggs engines in them but can't remember for sure.

Mine has the 10 horse magnum in it and I have seen other pics of 310-8's with paint like mine. I think all I have seen were 85 models, so maybe only 310's in 85 had the all red?

 

If you do a little google search, a lot of all red 310's come up and they seam to all be 85's.

 

The decals are different too, but when I repaint its gonna be red and black with the carbon fiber style decals.

Not to mention all the custom decals @Vinylguy makes. His stuff looks factory for sure and 20 years from now, there will be some lively discusions as well!
