Default Engine bay

I did some painting underneath my hood and I think it all turned out pretty good actually. I will probably paint a couple more things but here is a pic.

Looks good!

You should get an optima red top, that interstate just doesn't go with your color scheme

Looks good, I'm hoping to do some more touch up work on mine next weekend. I ordered the chrome oil cap from ZZp and have it installed when I got my downpipe but it needs more hehehe, it always needs more

Good to start getting your engine bay under control. Really helps you become aware early on of any new leaks and loose or broken parts.

A remarkable improvement. On a 1 to 10 it's from what I can see I would give it a 5 or 6, I give mine an 8 or maybe a 9. So many things as you can see that really need to be fine tuned, so keep at it and after a few cut knuckles from removing grease, rust spots etc. and detailing the nooks and crannies, you will have yourself an eye popping engine bay.

Great start so far...

Looks nice. I need to get mine shined up again. I haven't had time to detail it out yet this summer.
