Engine Bay lovin' (4 Pics)

So yesterday I finally got around to replacing my Valve Cover gasket and while I was at it, got some components painted. Doesn't match completely. But Im happy with it.

There was a sticker on the airbox which I cleaned to high hell and it still cmae through the paint a little bit even after 3 nice coats. Oh well, I'm happy.

What you guys think?

Pulls a lot better with the paint. Probably atleast 100 horses or so...

^^^ HAHAHA!!!!!

Anyways... Looks great. Degas cover is a must, and you can find them fairly easily. The paint doesn't exactly match the exterior, but that's alright if your not too OCD about it. I would be, but it looks good regardless. If you ever want to get it exact, you can always go to your local hardware store or go to DuPont's website, give them your paint code, and they can mix you up some paint that matches your exterior to the tee.
