Does anyone know until which year were the engine bay painted flat black? I noticed in pictures on eBay and such, that later cars had body colored engine bays, and earlier ones are black. Mine is black - but I so far assumed it was painted black, when the car was repainted red (from orange) in '92. I assumed the people were too lazy to paint the engine bay red. Also, was the flat back painted on top of the exterior color? On mine, the orange is showing through in a few areas.
