Re: Pin striping on early cars and wheels

Not to create confusion, my 12 has a dark blue body with black fenders. What color pinstriping should I have done on the blue body and hood and the black fenders. There is also a lot of wood, like the wheels, does that get any pinstriping and what color? Suggestions welcome. Thank you. Frank

WTB - Brass motometer

Does anyone have a brass body, not plated, motometer for a model T that they do not need? The new one that I have becomes chrome after a light polish. I took it back and they gave me a nother one that was just as bad and it looks terrible on the brass radiator and dog bone. Thank you. Frank
