    i have no pics, but other things u can do is move your coil pacs off your valve covers and also search for "wire mod", its a free mod where u hide those wires that go across the passenger wheel well area...

    Heres a run down of what I did. Nothing too major and everything can be done in the driveway.
    Whole engine as it sits now:

    Side shots without fuse covers painted.




    Basically I went crazy painting things under here. On a budget so I couldnt get chrome or billet pieces. Heres what I painted and in what colors.

    Gloss black:
    -Front Bumper Support
    -Headlight housings

    Gloss Red:
    -Fuse Box Covers
    -Tranny Dipstick (so it would match and not look pink)
    -Oil Dipstick
    -Aux Batt Cover (so it would match as well)
    -ASR Cover
    -Windshield Washer Resiviour Cap
    -Hood Strut Ends
    -MAF
    -TB
    I plan on painting the valve covers the same red

    Aluminum:
    -Hood Struts
    -ASR Cover
    I plan on painting my intake this color as well.

    Added '97 FRC (very little cutting required), Hotchkiss STB, !Wire Mod, !AIR, !Ground Wires, Relocated all service stickers to the owners manual, Lid, Smooth Bellow, and removed the plastic shroud in front of the radiator. Lots of little things can add up quickly.

    PS everything was painted and clear coated with 500* Ceramic paint from Duplicolor. All of the things I've done would show up drastically better on a lighter colored car. With the black it just blends right in.

    EVL LS1: Where did you get your custom air lid cover from? Lookin for a place that will customize the lettering Asc #, born on date, but I haven't found a place that'll do that yet.
