J-Code Smog Tubes

It's time to pull the engine to clean it up but I don't know if the blue remnants on the smog tubes is correct or if someone went crazy with the blue paint (like on the rest of the engine).

Does anyone know the correct colors of the smog parts?
The second photo is one I found on the internet a couple years ago. Is it correct?

Thanks

PS, Yes, I'm going to also clean up that disaster of an engine compartment.

Yes, good luck with trying to take them apart for re-use.

Leave them attached to the cylinder heads if at all possible.

A complete 302 small block 1968 Thermactor smog system is heading in the direction of the big block stuff value wise.

Rob and Scott,

Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely leave them attached.
