Here is what I have been up to over the winter. Started with an all stock 2005 engine bay. BORING!!! I wanted to make it more presentable without having the nightmare of polishing everything. I already have that nightmare!!!!!

Anyway, I painted everything below the intake flat black, including the valve covers, timing cover and alternator. Total opposite direction from the 87, but it is my wife's car and she actually drives it.

Painted the engine covers to match the car and replaced every rubber hose with stainless braid. I hid as many of the wires as I could without getting to crazy.

I also purchased the radiator extensions which really finish off the front end if you ask me.

I think it looks much more presentable. Now I have to detail the crap out of it and get it ready for Carlisle as the 87 is getting a break from the trip this year.

Here are the pics. Excuse the dust on it.

It looks great, Scott. But you already knew that. You just posted the pics to elicit our accolades as a reward for your efforts.

The car is Sonic Blue not Vista. I posted the pics as I have been working on this thing for awhile. I went a different way with this car as opposed to my 87. Just thought I'd share what I had done.

Now I am really considering those cover's for the fuel rails and wires. Looks allot better then I though and I thought they would cover up my polished valve covers.

do you have an online receipt for all the steel braided lines or a list of all the lines you bought and the measurements and cost that you could send me ?
