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

I left my flex hose unpainted.
My flex conduit has no trace of paint.

Joe, for what it's worth, mine is unpainted.
They weren't painted; in 1915, the drawing even called for it to be polished.
