I have a couple of photos of WP aluminum lettered cars and you can
tell it WAS aluminum but it's definitely NOT white - it weathers to
a dull gray color, which may be why the practice was short lived.

     i have heard several WP experts state that the aluminum lettering quickly chalked to a white appearance, so that the choice of white or aluminum lettering is probably moot unless you are modeling a freshly outshopped car.
