Black underside, but the red seen at the sides could be overspray from the body paint job. Radiator bracket looks red.

Pierre - my initial comment would be to avoid the blue paper you are shooting on. It is really kicking in a lot of blue into the car's color. A medium neutral gray would be best all-around.
