[TR] TR4 Over Rider Support Tubes

I recently stripped the stay rods (wheel arch to valance) on my TR4A and
found original body color. In these case of these two, they were not
painted well - I sanded several paint drips from off the bottom edge. Its
likely that they were painted on the car and with not much paint along the
bottom except for the runs.

The ones that came with my 63 were painted silver. So I cleaned them up
and repainted them silver. My 63 is SPA white.
