Hey, don't drag me into this. My car's paint is not original and the engine compartment was restored. My opinion is the 60-62 cars that aren't black should have the front of their radiator supports sloppily painted black, so you don't see light body color through the grille. I did paint mine black. Noel takes and submits dozens of pictures of 300s at our meets, but tends to miss mine. Probably because it's a driver and he sees it around at events near home fairly regularly.

This includes one all-original Alaskan White 300F coupe from NY, that drove to both our Mystic and Macungie Meets. Gil Cunningham also has the full radiator support in his blue 300F convertible painted black - looking back at Chattanooga. Can't tell by my car, which has it painted black, but then Andy Mikonis' G coupe has it body color Alaskan White.Noel HastalisF coupe
