Maybe whitewash them as if a car set up for a builders photo was not repainted. Then it would be quite visible. 😀

The truss rods and turnbuckles look great, Bill. Seems a shame to hide this work in the murkiness under the car.

In an effort to make sure any 1/87 size persons “living rough’ can “ride the rods” more safely I assembled the truss rod underframes of my GN and CB&Q models so that I could get a board to fit into the turnbuckles. Of course the boards also help keep the turnbuckles and therefore the underframes nice and tight.
