      ==========================
      Now there's a tough one.
      I haven't seen a Crosley
      in original paint for
      decades, so I can only
      guess. (Big help, huh?)
      Hmmm ... after they were
      stamped they needed to be
      painted almost
      immediately to avoid
      rusting, so I'd say it'd
      be primer.
      To avoid extra labor
      costs, Crosley Motors
      would logically just use
      body color on any part it
      made. (Non-Crosley-made
      parts such as generators
      and the like came already
      painted.)
      The only way to really
      know is to cut down
      through the paint layers
      to the first coat.
      I salute you on your
      quest for historical
      accuracy!

      This one I know. No,
      they're identical in
      height, Larry. You're
      sure that center garnish
      molding is Crosley?

      Lou, Thanks for the reply. The brackets have the original body color on them. I was assuming they should have been black since they are going from the frame

        Lou, Thanks for the reply. The brackets have the original body
        color on them. I was assuming they should have been black since
        they are going from the frame to the grille but I just finished
        holding them in position and realized that they actual mount to the
        hood support cross bar not the grille. Now it makes more sense that
        they are body color since that were probably attached to the lood
        support and painted as an assembly.
