    So the engine from the red nissan is with a friend for a rebuild so I can sell it on as a working engine rather than a poorly one




    It will be having all new piston rings and gaskets and a good inspection and clean!

    Right then SXOC...

    What colour to do the engine bay!

    The car is red atm and the exterior will be painted Laguna Seca Blue at some point soon.


    However i need to sort the bay out while the engine is out so these are the options:

    Leave the bay red

    Paint it Orange

    Paint it Bronze or copper


    What is everyone's input on this?

    Yeah I tried finding a photo of it to see but can't so at least it isn't common!

    However atm I'm drawn to red as it means i can get it finished quicker as its already red

    Red is an awful colour though fades etc and its too standard, want something different!

    Don't worry there will be plenty

    And I considered purple but don't think it will go with the pale blue
