That thing from the alternator is a cooling duck. It allows the Alt. to suck in cold air from under the car.

thats a nice car you have picked up, congrats on the find.

I voted for stock red. Unless you're getting the engine bay, door jambs, etc, i hate having two tones visible, but that's just me! And red looks very nice for an alltrac too.

And i would have to agree slightly, if i really wanted to and look hard enough, i would also say it COULD use a new paintjob. But do you NEED it? That's up to you of course! I would personally tune the engine up first, add a few mods, see how it runs, etc, before putting the money into a paint job (which won't affect the reliability of your car).
