Hi All- What colour should the Radiator support be? Should it be black, or the body colour?
Cars are 1961 and 1962 Hawks.

Are you talking about the "U" Channel the Radiator sits in?
I can't imagine that being anything but the Original semi-gloss BLACK!

And do NOT forget the Flat Black at the Bottom of the Hood behind the Grille on the '62!

Thanks for the reply Rich . I know nothing of the flat black behind the grille- never seen that (maybe for want of actually looking !) How far did the black paint extend?

You should try and get a few of the Turning Wheels Bulletins on hawks. They have valuable information on specific details about colors and generally show pictures that help alleviate the guesswork. Not to mention fun to read and reference. Enjoy

You can download an index of all "Turning Wheels" magazines http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/tw_index.asp and choose the issues you want and order them from me or spend $100.00 for a complete set on a USB flash drive.

All the way across the Lower Hood Brace area, the area you see (but should not) when enlarging the Dark Rose Mist '63 GT Pic.

The flat black runs all the way across the bottom of the hood from the grille opening to the center of the grille surround bolt holes including the lower side bolt. It helps distract the eye from seeing the hood as it shows though the grille on the lower part of the grille screen. When this is left body color it makes your grille opening look like crap IMO. you can kind of see it on the bottom of my hood behind the grille.

A big hanks for letting me know about this Robert. Our Club here in Melbourne Australia has TW for lending but my circumstances make it inconvenient to borrow. I'd be interested in obtaining a flash drive and will chase it up.

Thanks Az64Stude. you're right on that score. a later post has made me aware of a digital compendium of TW so I reckon that will be a serious 'do-er' .

TW April 87 ( from memory) is usually a good start.
Lots of info in that edition.

Just got my USB flash drive yesterday and am having fun looking at issues I've never seen before. And the index is invaluable.
