Default 29 ccpu front bumper

Restoring 29 and noticed the front bumper isn't vertical, at the top it leans forward, should it be plumb?
What color is the sun visor, black or same as cab?
thanks

The bumper brackets should present the front bumper "vertical." If not, something is bent. Or possibly bumper brackets from an AA truck (later trucks used different bumpers a segment of a tube - i.e. "curved.")

The visor on the CC pickup is a fabric covered metal frame applied to the front of the cab by four bolts. The frame is covered in the same black material as the top, in grain orientation same as the top (not cross-ways.)

There have been discussions recently on covering this frame and the inaccuracies found in reproduction frames. (i.e. missing holes for the metal fabric "hold-up.") You'll want to look back a couple of weeks and see the discussion.
