1966 Mustang. Engine bay detailing?

Does anyone know of a good source for correct engine bay detailing information. I am most interested in pictures showing mounting and routing details, colors, etc. In particular, I'm interested in 1966, but I assume any source will cover multiple years.
Thanks!

I don't know of a much better place on the WWW than this: http://www.nvsaac.com/gallery/picture_galleries.htm

Other than that, hardcover books.

There are slight changes from 65 & 66. I have many pics of mine if you'd like some. It's not concours, but darn close in detail and routing.

I would love to see some of yours. If you have some closeup pictures of the two front fender aprons, shots of the engine from the front and each side, and the firewall area would be great. Mine isn't going to be anything more than a driver, but I would like to keep the look as original as possible, and placement and routing are too easy to keep correct not to do it.
Thanks, Mike

Here's a few to hold you over.

The one pic of the rough looking engine compartment was an original unrestored 66 K-GT convert, with a bench seat, auto trans and Special Order paint. Believed to be 1 of 1.

A buddy of mine and I bought it a few years ago and flipped it, I used my part of the money to finish mine.

If there's a particular area you need or are wondering about feel free to ask, I can grab a pic if you'd like. Mine is going back to stock in the next few weeks and then up for sale.

Depends on how exact you want to be. I know 99% of the way they should be. If I don't know the answer I have a whole library of 64-73 Mustang books for reference.

Hey Beagle1,
These photos are excellent and exactly what I have been chasing as my lazy 289 is due for a rebuild this winter (Australia). I will surely be using them as a guide. Thanks so much for taking the time to post them. Awesome!
