I'm painting the engine bay while the engine is out

What colour should it be?
Thanks in advance

The LCOC Mark II Authenticity Manual would be a good investment to guide your detailing.

I agree the AM would be a good investment I have one for 58-60 Tbirds
One good thing is that there are no Marks to compare to here so I can get away with a few things
