Am working on. C&EI 3300-3359 40' boxcar built by ACF in 10/1959.

Anyone know if the roofs were painted same as the sides, coated with black car cement or left in galvanized steel?

Thanks

Black car cement - underframe
Unpainted galvanized steel - roof, running boards, brake step
Yellow - journal box lids
White - stencils
