Should the flexible hose from the bulb to the horn remain unpainted brass or be painted black on a 1914 touring?

Thanks!
-Joe

Hi Joe,

As far as I know they are unpainted. Others will chime in, I'm sure. Bill

Painted, except for the bezel and screen, which are brass, like on this 1915.

Keith, I know the horn is painted, my question is about the hose in the interior that goes from the rubber bulb to the horn

I left my flex hose unpainted.

Here is a brand new 1914 in the Ford executive garage in Highland Park. You can see the correct finish on the hose and the position of the bulb when properly mounted:

Joe, for what it's worth, mine is unpainted.

They weren't painted; in 1915, the drawing even called for it to be polished.
