The two-tone exterior body of Project Barge is finished in full-gloss “White Diamond Pearl” paint, while the roof, front grille, and 18-inch Kahn Mondial Retro wheels are finished in “Nara Bronze.” A custom Safety Devices roll-cage was finished in premium Line-X in the same “Nara Bronze” to match.

The copper-plated metalwork on the exterior and inside of the vehicle is another feature that makes Project Barge stand out. This is a first for E.C.D. Automotive Design.
