If you take a look at some of the pictures in the last post, you'll notice my fuel system fittings are red and blue. I never really cared for the color because it never went with the theme of the car. I've ordered black anodized fittings and line to clean up the look of the engine bay.

I have also popped off the valve covers to polish them to match my intake. They should be done later this week if I have time.

The more I look at the engine bay, I realize how much I can clean it up. The coil pack mounting plates are now off. I have taken measurements of them and am redesigning them in Solidworks so they have a slight angle to them. I used to work at a machine shop, so the new design for the mounting plates will be CNC'd in aluminum, then polished by me to match the valve covers.

The spark plug wires will also be black to match my fuel system fittings.

I'm also going to be redoing the wiring for the fuel injectors. I'll be replacing the terminals with black ones, and wrapping the exposed wires with black heat shrink so they don't stand out.

I obviously have quite the list of what I would like to do, but I think it will have an awesome end result!
