Cool, a fellow Ontario member :)

I think a stainless steel shorty exhaust manifold and an SVT coolant reservoir cover would really set off the engine bay.

I whole heartedly agree. the coolant reservoir is killing me , and manifold , either steel or powdercoated white. But maybe if i find one at the right deal over winter.

I was considereing getting a steel coolant reservoir made and paint top white and sides black like my battery cover , but its still only a thought

Looks great man.

I'll be honest, at first I like whaaaa, then I scrolled farther and it got much better lol. Your definitely improving on things, keep it up [thumb]. Oh try to ditch that nasty looking stock exhaust manifold and that will clean up the whole engine bay even more. What wheels are those? I kind of like them, they remind me of Mazda or those old school tq d thrust wheels, but I know they didn't come in a four lug pattern lol

Def like where this is going, nice job on that engine bay, now source a SVT degas cover, or just buy one from CFM lol

Looking good. I think you should leave your tails and side markers stock color, they will contrast nicely with the clean look you have going.

K Dog 11-15-2012 09:30 AM

Daaang. Looks TIGHT in WHITE!!! :D

They are Eagle alloy Rims , they actually don`t make them in a 4 bolt pattern anymore. Atleast not in polished Chrome.
