What color should the hood shelves painted for a 1911 Model T if the car is painted blue?

Should they be blue also?

Jim-
They should be black, the same as the hood latches, springs and bolts.

That being said, on the original hood shelves on my 1911, I could not find one speck of paint! I stained them to match the firewall.

I figured I could paint them black anytime.

"The book" says they were all painted black, but as much as I want everything "correct" (and the book even says there's no such thing as a "correct" Model T anyway), I drew the line there on my '12 & '15...cars that beautiful NEED to have the hood shelf "au natural"!! I just re-finished them for the '12 with 4 coats of polyurethane gloss and wow, they look great if I do say so myself! :-)
