Default Correct windshield color/Coker wheels

I have a two part question concerning my 1930 deluxe coupe
1). Looking through the Ford paint and body book it reads that the windshield color should be the upper body color? Iíve gone to the mafca website looking at original cars and I see windshields painted upper and lower colors. Can someone settle this for me?
2). I have 5 original wheels that have been straightened but need finish work. Does anyone have any experience with the new coker wheels? Just trying to make the best decisions on which way to go.
Thanks.

the correct windshield frame color should be upper body color. the new wheels are a lot of money. if you have good original wheels, use them.

Ditto as stated; not sure where Coker gets theirs but some of the repro wheels have different dimples profiles where the spokes enter the rim.

I think that the Coker wheels are made in Mexico .
