Hi Rodger- mine is green on a green car, neither having been repainted- but the chassis frame is red... Merry Christmas TR3!

Here is a quote straight from the judging guide:

“Hoodsticks - The hoodstick assemblies fitted to all cars were essentially the same, variations, if any, being insignificant or unnoticeable. On nearly all cars, the hoodstick assemblies and hoodstick mounting screws were painted the color of the body of the car. Some very late cars may have had their hoodsticks painted black, or a buff (semi-gloss tan). Do not deduct for very late cars with black or buff hoodstick assemblies.

Most early cars seem to have had a strip of buff moquette (essentially furflex) glued across the top half of the front hoodstick bow. This strip extends only across the center section of the bow, between the webbing. It is uncertain when this was discontinued. Do not deduct for the absence of this strip.”
