    Hi guys I'm currently undergoing a complete engine rebuild and as the engine is out I wanted to clean up the engine bay and repaint the various bits and pieces.My question is the rear firewall(closest to the boot) on my car is black but my my Fmech is pretty sure that originally it is supposed to be silver like the fuel tanks.Can anyone confirm for me what colour it is supposed to be?Thanks in advance

    I'll check tonight, but IIRC, I think it is silver.

    Michael looking at your first picture it appears that yours is black or I cant see it clearly.I am talking about the rear fire wall where the engine brace is mounted facing the rear headers but if everyone is saying its silver then silver it will be :)

    If its the wall next to the boot(luggage compartment) then mine is black .The front one (back of seats) is silver along with the fuel tanks.

    I didn't get a chance to paint it today as I worked on the front firewall.I cut a piece of allumium sheet and stuck a thin sheet of silver sided foam insulation to it.It looks good and I will post some pics of it when I get a chance.Now just so you guys know what I'm talking about here is a pic of the rear firewall that is currently black on my car

    Typical Ferrari situation, probably many right answers :)
    If there is no hint of it previously having been another colour, then leave it the current one. In your case that would be black.

    Mine was black too, the othersite, at the back of the seats was silver.
    At least in mine 208gt4 it was.
    But as with all italian classics, there were often different colors, parts or materials on the same productionline.......
