Very Nice!!! You should probably paint the cam gear cover black so it would match better.

Re: Getting ready to play dress-up w/ my engine bay (xman03)

Thanks all for the comments. I will definitely post pics up when installed.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>xman03</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Very Nice!!!

I have another idea to add alittle more blue as well.

Are all those pieces the same color? I have all those covers on my car and they are all a different color shade, i no longer enjoy showing what's under my hood....

Re: Getting ready to play dress-up w/ my engine bay (Ride R)

I enjoyed my experience with Henry, the winglets I got from him did the trick <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I might end up ordering some mirror covers and a gauge pod, but shhhh, he doesn't know that!
