what is the correct finish for the interior left side vent handle? I have seen most cars that have been restored are painted, but I pulled three different handles off of three different parts cars and they all appear to be chrome in the protected areas.

Thanks for your help.

If you are talking about the lever for the door down by the drivers feet for your '54, I think those were actually nickel plated. I've seen a NOS one and it was "chromey" but not like bumper chrome or a cafeteria chair leg. It had a slight goldish tint to it.

Thanks for the info, I know that all of the ones that I have seen have been painted interior color. But I was confused when I saw the ones on the parts car that appeared to have some type of chrome finish. I guess I will chrome mine , again thanks for the info.
