Lets just say the rattle cans to paint with are going to be my biggest cost.

For your positive battery terminal you should just paint it instead of having a big block, I did mine and it took that big red sore spot out of the picture. I then wrapped the cables in nylon braid which is like 10 bucks. (The braid is not shown in pic, its too old can update tonight)

Here are my most recent pics of dressing up the engine bay, I did something similar to what you want to do near the fuse box and it is awesome. Again like I stated before it seems much cleaner and cheaper to paint the + terminal and cover the cable IMO.

Can not see those picture for what ever reason.

Cost was not a problem for this project and I see your point on just painting the terminal black. Just went the box route since everything else was going to have boxes around it. But I may wrap the wire in something thats a good idea. It's at least custom and one off thats all I really wanted to do. Make me stand out at car shows from others in some way.

Sorry I could see them on my computer, but went to a different one and could not, should be fixed. Don't get me wrong, I like what your doing, just for what I am doing making the space more open in the engine compartment a box would not fly, plus most of us have no one to fab up stuff like you do so for really tight wads on stuff painting is a cheaper option.

Been away for a while anyways....

The boxes ended up being tig welded and would be to costly to make this worth the while.

Here is the shield that covers the radiator cover. Color will be gloss black. I ended up not using the brackets pictured above. They were to thick. I did however make new ones that are just thinner.
