Check out the literal "Childlike" paintjob on the body, AND under the hood. It'* quite clear that the whole underhood was just spray painted over with black and chrome paint.

While it does have massive orange peel on all panels, that'* a pretty easy fix with a sanding and a clearcoat. The fact that they painted over the 2.8EFI badge is what gets me...

I can't tell whether the manifold and alternator have been painted, or polished up.

My main concern was under the hood.

You can tell that the IAC, vacuum lines, TPS, EGR, TB, upper plenum, alternator, valve covers, EVERYTHING has been painted over. Look at the power steering resevoir, you can see overspray on it. Also look at the back firewall all those harnesses were painted over.
