ACF Type 21 Tank Cars in UTLX Service

I'm thinking of upgrading the details of the Life Like P2K Type 21
tank car lettered for UTLX, a few questions came to mind.

1) Were ACF Type 21 cars acquired by UTC from other companies
upgraded with UTC style hardware (placard holders, discharge valves,
handrail stanchions, etc.)?

2) The UTLX lettering on the end of the Life Like P2K Type 21 tank
car identifies the tank car as class X-3 - is this correct even
though the tank cars were not constructed to UTC's X-3 design? If
not correct then what is the proper UTC class identification for
these ACF Type 21 cars?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
