I am ready to start pin striping my new wheels for my 1910 touring which is Brewster Green. What color should the pin striping be? I have seen lots of patterns but nothing on the color. I would appreciate the help!
Just a guess but since most of the pin stripes from '10-'13 were french grey I would suggest that. Sure looks good on my '13!
Tim is correct. French Grey.
I had an original 1910 that had traces of red pinstriping on a green body.
Great Photo Royce!
I have seen red pinstripes on the green cars too.
Charlie Shaver might know.
Reviewed Bruce's CD and in there are photos of original 1910 Touring, #23805.
Brewster Green dark, with red pin striping that is original to this T.
The red stripe color is called "vermillion". I have striped many carriages/sleighs that original color combination. Those colors and technology were carried over from the horse drawn carriage industry. It's a very rich looking color combination. Your paint jobber can set you up with a color chip to match the color vermillion.
Thank you all for your input! I believe I will go with the "vermillion".
John, my 1910 touring has red striping.
