[Healeys] Black faces

My BJ8 has the original engine bay paint; and IIRC the cross bar is 
painted same as the rest (body color; in my case Colorado Red).  I'll 
check later.

I believe the lower lips are painted on 4- and 6-cylinder cars; at any 
rate, the cars look better with the paint (that lip looks unfinished 
without it).  I think semi-gloss is too shiny, I used satin black.
