Default 1946 Lincoln wheel paint color

Does anyone know the correct paint color for the wheels on my 1946 Lincoln continental ? Also the color of the stripes in the chrome attachments for the rear fenders and headlights. My car has maroon body paint. From some of the pictures I have seen they appear red,orange and body color.
Thanks, Rick

Wheels are black. The red stripe on the tail lite spears and head lite doors is red. I used Cardinal Red from an early2000 Ford Fiesta. LZOC has an authenticity manual that gives these details. Or maybe it was LCOC. A little pricey, but worth it for the minutia. Stripe on the dash for Continentals was a creamy white.

Rick, if your 1946's engine is before #143927 the wheels have the same color as the body. After that number is wheel color is black.
