    Show Us Your Engine Bay!

    Like the title says, we want to know what your engine bay looks like.

    Here's mine to start the thread off:

    I've got a lot less horsepower - luckily they are Japanese horses - usually in better shape and more motivated.

    Thank you sir! It was a gift from a friend of mine, debated between it and the Mazdaspeed Miata oil cap I had prior. The MS3 cap won.

    Much easier than that. Valve cover was wire brushed (on the end of a cordless drill), then washed - that's it. Duplicolor Metalcast red and then after full cure, clear engine enamel. Wet sand and polish the clear.

    I did grind off the "16 DOHC..." lettering off one side of the valve cover. Gives it a longer appearance, much different with the cut valve cover.

    Looks good! That's the same color I used on my AutoEXE brace when I refinished it. I like that color a lot.
