Hi;

 

Externally my HLE 1000 Mini is Almond Green (GN37) with Old English White (WT03) Roof and Weller 5 x 10 wheels. 

 

For the engine colour scheme, rather than going for the standard A+ 1275 Red, I am leaning towards a MOWOG green block, matt cylinder head. Problem is this will not stand out enough with the almond green engine bay. So, inspired by a few engines in the Engine Bay area, I thought about painting the engine bay a different colour - probably grey?

 

Any thoughts.

Grey/Silver goes well with Green in my opinion

Sounds good. a darker grey will set off polished alloy/chrome best. lime green fan pulley?

So are we thinking a grey engine bay or grey engine?

He mentions a body colour engine bay with a grey engine to stand out against it
