Opinions on This Engine Bay Paint Plan Please.

I'm looking to paint my engine bay. This is my vision. It's a quick photoshop job, the yellow will match the K&N intake (VHT paint) so try to pretend it does in the picture. ;)



yes I know I'm a geek, but I think it'd be pretty cool. I'm open to other ideas as well. That's just what I envisioned.

I will eventually paint my valve cover too. I'm just not at that point yet.

Thanks guys!

sorry I kind of titled the thread a little rudely. didn't mean for it to come off rash.

what fearless said about too much yellow....idk it could go either way for me, didn't strike me as too much, so it's up to your taste.

it's the insignia of the jedi order. I'm not 100% yet on that specific insignia either, but its most likely gonna be that.

I'll probably just get it done anyhow. I suppose if it looks bad, I'll just toss the cover. No harm in using the blank canvas while I got it though. lol

I suppose most think its soooo bad they wont even post a comment. I'll think it over a bit before doing it then. Maybe I'll come up with a better idea.

I think it looks kewl. The symbol is awesome too, although I had no idea it was Star Wars. At least you did not use Star Trek. lol

Im not a huge fan of so much yellow. I think it'd be better with some black higlights of some sort
