Engine compartment *Pics

Well I finally got a little time to do a little something cosmetic under the hood. I was gonna do the turbo but that would have added more time than I had. I think it turned out pretty good for a shade tree paint job. I didnt even stratch it putting the pipes back in.

Hey now can we stay focused on the paint not the dirt? Thanks for the compliment though. Im gonna let the paint cure good and then Ill work on the dirt and grease. Besides the nasty background makes the paint look better ha

You can never have enough sonic blue, I wanted to have something completely different under the hood. Everything else on my truck is black or white but you pop the hood and bam , blue!

Sweet. Red and black was my 2nd choice. I couldnt decide what other color to do that would look right with the blue, MAYBE one day Ill get the valve covers and turbo done up. Not sure what color though, possibly red or silver.
