Well after 5 years I've finally painted my black engine bay body color.
Took a long time preparing, especially masking everything but it was worth it.
It's come out pretty good, a few minor defects and I've probably painted a few things that were meant to be black but I'm very happy!

Nice job! That's one of my "wish-I-could-do-over" items. That and yanking the dash and redoing the instrument cluster before putting the new windshield in. :BangHead:

Wonder why?? Almost seems like more trouble when you're building them new at the factory.

Looks great. Something I should have done to my 66 Dart. I was in too big of a hurry to get the engine set back in place and running.
