Default 1964 gp shifter plate question

hi guys:
my gp shifter was never changed when the po upgraded to a t-400. i installed a shift works shifter and it now operates as it should. my question concerns the shifter plate indicator (prndll). the one that came out was on a glass plate that had a strip of aluminum tape under it. i had purchased the one from shiftworks (plexiglas). to my surprise, i found that the there was a light under that plate that i couldn't see due to the aluminum tape. the tin housing the bulb was mounted in was the same color as the car, skyline blue. it looks to be a factory paint. were these housings color matched to the cars? or are they all one color? if so, what is that color.
thanks.

The shift indicator housing is a light blue on all of the cars no matter the car color.

goatracer1:
thank you for your answer. it looked like factory paint but i couldn't be certain. anybody have a picture on how the light box is held in place to the shifter plate? mine was secured with silicon caulking.

If I remember correctly it just sits in there held down by the shift indicator plate and the top cover.

Thank you goatracer1. I presume the two spring clips lock everything in place.
