I am restoring the original fuel tank from FXC 577 (1939 A Rapide) and soon will be painting it. I have a "new" tank that was made in the early '70's - one of a batch of half a dozen - or so I am told. I am trying to determine where the gold stripes should be. The 'repop' tank has them 5/32" wide and just inside of the cover strips on the top-to-sidepanel joint. Other pictures I have seen show some with them on the edge of the paint outside of that upper joint, where the paint ends at the stainless steel side panel, and others like the repop! Anyone got any thoughts??
