Re: Metal running boards on NYC

Scott Pitzer

Let me rephrase the question. WOULD the running board be painted black like the roof, OR be unpainted (possibly with overspray here and there?)
I speculated on the reduction in contrast because my model would not be a "new car." (In fact it would be a few years out of our era.)

Scott, I would think if the running board was unpainted it was
galvanized. It would have darkened some over the years reducing the
contrast a little.
