nice dude, the repainted stuff looks WAY better. For your bay, you should paint your valve cover and get the blue steeda intake. My friend has it and it makes his bay look SOOOO much better

Definitely looks good, except the engine bay of course, and thats nothing a few cleanup supplies and a small hurricane couldn't fix.

you can...get everything wet and then spray the whole thing down with degreaser( Castrol Super Clean or Purple Power...Walmart) It says to mix it with water but dont, spray it as is but dont get it on your skin, it will peel off. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then start the engine. With the engine running spray out your engine bay. Everything could get wet but avoid direct spraying of the alternator, wiring, etc.

Monkey if you wanted to clean up your engine bay we could have worked something out for the Ford Racing Valve Cover and the Black Degass Cover (rad resvouir) and you can paint that blue to, let me know maybe I can get them together with the knobs ill be shipping them out 2morrow im glad you like the headliner and it's great you were able to match the fronts. pillars to the already painted rears as for an engine wash i would cover the alternator with a plastic bag just incase u get water to close to it.
