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.

Wow, stunning. That's a head turner for sure. Any interior pics? I'm curious to see how it looks with those seats.

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.
