About the oilstick you got the answer.
About the "gold" finish, rickjordan is right. A lot of the items around the engine are cadmiumplated to protect them from rust. As you can see yourself, the cadmium sticks better to steel parts ( IP pump covers and tubing ) than aluminum ( valve cover or intake manifold ).
I polished the aluminum parts and left the steel parts alone.
