Visual Engine mod help.

ok, so heres the deal, i want underneath the hood to be as appealing as possible(as everyone does). i plan on spraying the valve cover down with some red paint this week. [intake soon as well.] Im kind of at a loss for anymore ideas to make this look better. Any suggestions? Can i do anything else with the ugly black plastic covers left?

as said, mrz has really nice billet stuff

scagnetti, it may have been cobalt addiction? i know they have colored silicon hoses

also a strut bar painted red would look good

you can paint the other plastics if you want. maybe red?

and lastly i said this in your other thread, itll look so much better if you take out the plastic neck under the oil cap. it just twists out. and the cap still fits perfectly

I would definetly get an intake to start and then paint the plastic cover by the fust box red, that should get you off to a good start.

That little peg for the engine cover on the back passenger side of the engine is removable. Also painting is your friend, but don't go overboard!

MRZ is a GREAT place for under hood cosmetics!
