When looking at early 924's what color should the engine bay be? On the 924's I have owned they have been color matched. Meaning the engine bay was painted the same color as the body color.

However I have seen two supposed low milage cars both with a black painted engine bay.

Just trying to figure out whats is correct. I always assumed that if someone paints the engine bay black they are hiding something but I could be wrong.

Body color for sure.

You also see the crappy paint job on the last one, its flaking of reveling the red under. Very nice interior otherwise.

The first one har a really crappy paint job in the engine bay. Sprayed black over a bunch of components such as engine stickers, ignition box, headlight mechanism.
