Default FJ60 2F BVSV color question

I need to replace one of the BVSV valve thingies on the thermostat housing and when I called C-Dan I couldn't rememeber which one...so I just got both.

Of the new ones, one is reddish/pink and the other like a darker blueish/purple color. When I look at the housing where it's supposed to go, I see one reddish one (good) and the other one looks white(???). Is it just aged and faded? are there aftermarket BVSVs of different colors? When I get home I'll take some pics if that helps the cause.

thanks!

Pink/reddish one on the bottom, brown/grey/bluish/faded whitish whatever one on the top...

I think the "white one" you've got might be just aged and faded.

How much were those doodads? I feel like picking up a couple since I think mine will just snap someday when they are no longer available..
I've been kinda hoarding emissions parts. i'm a geek.

I snapped one of those suckers off and if I recall it was 40-50 bones to replace it.

Kinda neat to see that they were actually that blue when new!

Marco is right, purple on top, red below and one year into mine, they're so faded that I had to lift a bit of the tubing to really make certain of the color.
