Default wing window stenciling 1930 deluxe roadster

Am I correct is assuming that the stenciling on the wing windows for a 1930 deluxe roadster was an accessory and the wing windows had no stenciling when the car came from the factory from the factory

Correct. Factory wing windows or wind wings were plain glass.

I am assuming that question here is regarding the decorative stenciling one sees displayed on wing windows. Regarding the bug/identification marking, I recall the Standards calls out a date when the wings started getting marked. I’m also not sure if the wings are safety glass or not on the Roadsters.

Plain white CONTACT paper, over the glass, draw a design, cut it out with an X-ACTO knife, sand blast it, bead blast it, or blast it over a cheap Spark Plug Cleaner, peel off the CONTACT paper & VOILLE', You have professional looking STENCILING!----(God, that wuz a LOOOOOONG sentence!)
ALSO, those regular air nozzles, with a hose to suck solvent, can be used for Sand-Blasting. Just drop the hose in a Big Jar, fill it with Sand & it works QUITE well, for small jobs.

That is how I did the etched glass when I remodeled our kitchen. Excuse the mess, it's all done now

That's really nice. A little off-topic but how about some pics of the finished kitchen?
