    Would you mind showing a hood up pic? I thought about mine getting painted another color eventually, and never really seen a pewter go to another color.

    Did you have the engine bay, door jams, under the hatch and all other places you could see Pewter?

    kinda why i'm glad i have a black car. If i ever did a color change, IE: corvette millenium yellow i could retain the black engine bay and it would look tits

    ok eeryone, the car is just a gloss orange. no is no pearl. As far as the coverage all the jams are painted. the doors, rocker panels, and all the seals and heat extrators were removed. the hood, trunk, and mirriors were removed and painted. the body shop didnt want to remover the engine. however the parts they couldnt spay we went in and covered it with flat black. if you really look down in the engine bay you can see some pewter. i also had 6 hours of body work done and had to replace the licence plate cover. the whole thing cost me $3100.19. ill send you pics
