    body color looks best if you can finish the underside as nice as the top. Most will go with flat black because it hides imperfections.
    Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

    Re: under the hood

    I went with the body color method to show off the workmanship. You are correct though, people use flat black to hide a mess sometimes.
