i wanted to know for you guys that have repainted your whole car a another color from what it was, what did you do about the engine bay ? did you repaint the area in there to match or leave it the way it was ?

I ended up leaving the engine bay, but all door jams and truck were done.

pics of engine bay would be smart rich... to show the diff on the fenders and engine bay....

anyway his doesnt look bad since the color is just darker then the regular, but say your car is black and then spraying it white... no so nice :)

I also took my fenders off the car to paint them so the firewall and shock towers are silver. If I didn't do that part of the fender would be silver and it would not look good.

but at the same time, to do the engine bay PROPERLY would mean pulling the engine... for the cost of that you can buy another a4 which is the color that u want it to be... but on another hand it would be a great project and you would get to know ur car real well
