  • Paint: engine bay color

    Are the inner fender panels painted black or body color?

    Helps to know what you're working on!! But, Studebaker engine bays were body color.

      Since I don't recall what you own- I can't say.
      But unless it was a black car- it wouldn't be all black.
      Examples I own look like this~

      '65 Cruiser- body color except the battery tray and part of the inner fender
      '57 Commander- firewall matches lower body color, fenders match upper
      '54 Commander- body color- all of it
      '58 Packard- baody color- all of it
      '59 Lark- body color- all of it

      If it's a C/K- don't ask me!!! They are too hard for me to keep track of what with all the eceptions to the rules
