    I moved this to a better area for this topic. There is a sticky up top that shows several engine bays, check it out for ideas.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Let me know how we can help. We offer a variety of underhood dress up items such as cover kits, underhood mirrors, headplates, engine plauqes and Fuel Rail cover lettering options. Here are few pointers for the "awe factor:"

    Powdercoat/paint anything you can (air/deck lid,coil packs/bracket, intake, valve covers, pulleys/brackets, latches)
    Match you screw heads to whatever they're anchoring (i painted my manifold black, so i painted the screws black too, get it?).
    Polish a/c and brake lines
    Billet caps

    I notice "more than a few" of emblempros.com items in that engine bay. The entire bay looks very nice. Very good detail.

    As clean as your car is, I would of never thought that the TA was DD. But your very right, it's alot easier to keep clean once you ahve something else....

    Thats why I have my DD, its a 1988 town car...not purty but it has heat
