Default Roadster Deluxe or Standard ?

I just bought a 31 roadster project that is essentially a shell on a rolling chassis.How do I tell if it is a Deluxe or a Standard model?

If it never had cowl lights, it is a Standard.

If it had cowl lights, it MAY be a Deluxe.

The standard windshield frame is painted black while the DeLuxe frame is chrome. The DeLuxe windshield is also about 1-1/2 " shorter but I don't know either dimension offhand

My standard 31 roadster has no holes for cowl lights and never has .The standard roadster had different top irons that were more like some 28-29 cars . The standard windshield and stanchions
are taller than deluxe .
