Default Restoration of a 411

Hello all,
I had to start again with a complete restoration work on a 411 Serie III, as the former atempt has turned out as a poor work . Can anyone help with the information, whether the body colour was used for the motorbay, the whellarches etc. or whether these parts were painted black .
Thanks in advance for help with informations from forum members,
Clemens

Engine bay, wheel arches, spare wheel compartment and battery compartment were all black , drain channel around engine compartment/bonnet was in body colour.

Take care not to use too much paint on the bonnet or, as with my 410, the counter balance springs won't cope and the wretched thing will have to be propped open
