I would have painted the engine bay orange before I swapped engines. But otherwise I love it.

We went back and forth on that. We painted the whole underhood Gloss black to have some contrast, so it is at least fresh paint.

Thank you, This is house of color Tangelo Pearl Orange. We painted it 4 times before I was happy with the whole car. It really seems to pop in the sunlight with the pearl undercoat.

I will get some pictures. I was a little concerned it would be too much orange but we did all black accents and black on the cage so it really turned out nice.
