Colour advice needed

PostPost by: Neil Beswick » Thu Dec 29, 2005 7:05 am

I am shortly to effect a colour change on my 1964 S1 Elan convertible.
I am hoping that a contributor to this list can advise if the windscreen surround was painted by the factory in body colour or in black (I have seen them both ways). Also, wether or not the inside of the same screen frams moulding was body colour or black.
Thanks, and all the best for the New Year to forum members.

I also reserched this when I rebuilt my early S2 and all indications are that the w/screen frame and the cant rails were finished in a satin (semi gloss) black.(inside and out)
