Could someone tell me what colour (OE) the engine vent grills should be (the paint is currently badly deteriorated on them ). I have an '88GT....all black. Also....the carpeting has been replaced and is black....is that correct for the gray interior...or should it be gray? Any suggestions on repairing paint damage on the rear bumper cover? What products should i use for that? Thanks.

I used a 3 part enamel after sandblasting and priming, and it didn't stick real well. I say powdercoat them. Anyone do it yet?

Remove the lower screens (for better air transfer) and have them powdercoated satin black! End of line!

I like the BBQ grill paint...high temp...and remember if you dont like flat paint , you can always use a gloss clear coat over the paint to give you any shean you would want...and as far as the carpet...it wasnt black...I believe they only came in grey or tan....and red for the indys....correct me if I am wrong. Red was the only solid color if I remember right....to the eye..the grey and the tan looked solid but it wasnt...it was a mixer of variable colors within that color. I hope I didnt confuss you. John
