Hello all, I've making progress on my 50 3800, got the fenders back from body and paint, sure look nice. On to the grille. I know the grille outer bars were blue, and back bars were white, my question is, the ends of the grille where they bolt to the fenders, what color were they, did they match fender color? Also, the vertical bars, what color were they? Thanks in advance, Clint.

As evidenced by my grille when I disassembled it, everything except the outer grille bars was painted white.
I believe that the inner bars, vertical supports, and end pieces were all assembled, then painted white followed by attaching the either chrome or body color outer grille bars.
