Black engine bay

I’ve seen a few bays with black used and decided I’d do the same to complement the rest of the car. It really takes time stripping bits off, prepping and painting... then putting it back together without damaging it!

I eventually got to a point I’m happy with it, although I’m not sure whether to paint the strut brace black too? I’m think to leave it polished since its useful to lean on and won't scratch as easily.
