there has been a few street machine cars with black engine bays, how good are your skills at spraying? i think a black fade would look good

Hey there, this is my engine bay.

Image

I sanded it back with just 500grit then primed then painted, i did the whole front end as as much as you would see when looking in the bay. My bay isn't that great was painted in a carport but will be redone.

This is the bay with the motor in just after the respray on the outside.

Image

Just to show you what black can look like, but if it was done in a better location would've come out 100 times better
