New engine bay pics

Well, today was a perfect day out, and since I haven't really done anything new to my car in awhile, I decided to paint my motor mount, valve cover, and throttle body. I think they came out pretty good, and look great against the carbon fiber engine covers. Let me know what you guys think.





















AFter getting all that finished, I decided that it would be a good time to add some neons to the engine bay as well. Let me know what ya think.

Alittle sanding and paint can really go a long way, Very Nice! neons are a great touch.

Yes, I removed all of the stuff to paint them. There is a gasket under the valve cover, but if you're careful when removing it, it can be reused. The hardest part to remove was the motor mount. Had to jack the car up, put jack stands under the motor to support the weight, then take the motor mount out.

Yes, it can be polished, but it takes more work than what you mentioned. There's a lot of sanding that needs to be done as well.

Was it professionally painted? If it's Home Depot spray paint then it's going to come off if you ding it with a wrench.

I painted it with paint from Pep Boys that was made for the engine. I've used the same paint on both my previous cars and have never had a problem with it. It's all in making sure that it's prepped correctly. If you look at other pics of my car, especially the interior, you'll see that I have a lot of expirience with painting
