    WOw Paul ... its always so tight to check out a ride on its history of being built. I just bought an Ek Hatch, and thinking bout taking each interior piece off and cleaning it ... but not sure if it will come out as clean as yours ...

    nice bro

    I see the shop painted the engine bay with the engine in there ... after taking a few things off ... do you know how much he will charge just to do the engine bay the same?

    I painted the car myself at my body shop i did it that way because i didn't want to pull the engine out once again because i just put the motor in the car so it was a lazy move by me but i did remove everything around the motor to paint every part in my bay and did a good "ooops" job with the masking tape to lol .

    probably shine black like yours bro ... dont have no color codes right now. I just bought my hatch two weeks ago ... the color is Laguna Seca Blue ... not color code and not sure how much that would be to color match and spray engine bay, so proably just black like yours
