My Baltimore built 70 SS was originally Champaigne Gold, now Cranberry Red (like so many others). I'm curious as to the color of the Lower Cowl just under the windshield and the Fender Tie Brace (believe thats what its called just in front of the Radiator Support). Seem just about on all cars I've seen they are black, which mine is as well. However, some of my black paint is chipping in the corners and I can see the original Champaigne Gold peaking through. Where those areas originally painted the color of the body or were they stock black? Not sure why I would have gold there.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks, that's what I thought ... my gold on the cowl area and fender brace must of been from a bad repaint back in the day.

Thanks again.

Great info but dont see the Cowl Area or the Fender Tie Brace on the list.
firewall, inner fenders, radiator support-semigloss black
The firewall and cowl is the same.
