So that is two others, besides myself with the support tubes. If I understand
correctly, George says his are black (from the factory). What about Bob's?
Mine are body colour (signal red) and I do not remember having them painted -
but, it has been 46 1/2 years.
Maybe they were black and on the repaint many years ago perhaps they were
removed and repainted. If they were all black - which makes sense for a part
that is attached after the body was painted at the factory, what about the
supports from the bracket on the inner wheel arch to the top of the valance?
One might expect those to be black as well and mine are also body colour.
