The engine compartment has been detailed and painted, and it has a new front hood emblem and Super Sport emblems. The hood was repainted to remove the incorrect hood pins. It retains a lot of the original exterior paint, but the right rear quarter-panel was repainted to repair scratches along with the rocker panel.
