Those are pretty basic cars. You can't go wrong painting nearly everything black. Hoses are red. The fan belt will be tan. The exhaust manifold will be natural gray. Aside from a few assorted  plated parts (windshield nuts, hubcaps and the radiator neck and cap) and cad colored demountable rims, the rest of the car is all black. I like that roadster pickup! Other than the natural wheels, plated headlamp rings and prop nuts, it looks like a pretty correct car.

Here is another T [factory photo -possibly] A little bit later. yes as you said it will be ''any color you want-as long as its black''  . things to figure out are A LOT---engine, hood,fenders,running boards,splash aprons, axles, wheels and tires- even the frame will have to be made up as the Lindberg kit is Z'ed.  It will be another interesting project- I may get into brass on this one...... the Lindberg kit will supply the body. top. windshield.        radiator and bed are from the Monogram T   and i'm sure lots of small parts from both kits will be modified as well.....and on and on..........
