djpateman, I painted it green. It had traces of black (boge I believe) but had been rattle canned red.
Might have an engine coming in next week. PM or text me your number again.

I just did the same thing as you are doing with the same strut and insert. There's probably a tool to remove the threaded retainer but since you will get a new retainer with the new insert, a pipe wrench is easy. Billstein no longer recommends oil in the strut tube but I use some heavy grease on the threads so they don't corrode.
