This is a discussion on Lets see under the hood!!! within the Showcar and Detailing forums, part of the General Help category; That looks GREAT. Do you have a pic of what you did on the battery side?...

    That is a clean, clean setup. I love the look of a cleaned up engine bay without adding any store bought items. Less is more. Outstanding job. Im gonna borrow some of your ieas for mine. That area between the radiator and the nose has always irritated me. Again, great job.

    THANKS!! That is the biggest compliment to me! i even have been asked "who makes BADBIRD edition" and at TA NATS a buddy was checking out cars at Kevin Morgans and one of the guys from there told him to check out my car! I have to build on budget and work with what i have so some stuff is just stock but tweaked somehow.(wait to see what i'm doing with hood hinges) hopefully i can start saving for the motor i want but until then enjoying just driving car.Took out few weeks ago and one buddy couldn't believe i take out in rain and has 78,000 mi on it! Car is still "fully loaded" with options and never thought i would like nitous i can drive around getting 20 some mpg and just under 400 hp and then flick switch for extra 100 hp(or so) and run 10's not to mention purging thru NOStrils in hood.Some nice cars here and always great to see all that everyone has done to make their own!!!! .
