I thought I'd cleanup and repaint the engine bay a light flat gray. The compartment was a different red than the rest of the car along with some black.
So given that you are now painting the whole exterior, will you still do the engine bay grey? My advice would be to shoot the exterior color everywhere.
As the paint(s) came off we found tons of Bondo and even a fiberglass "repair" of the right-front rocker. The chassis is experiencing the equivalent of a Nutrisystem diet.
Yea, that's pretty typical. You learn a lot when the paint comes off.
