Final, for now, engine bay dress-up

Some of these pics are already in customizing 9000's, but they really belong here. Got rid of the pale blue enamel valve cover paint and painted to match the rest of the stuff I painted under there.

POR-15 Colorchrome - it is like custom candy paint except it does one thing candy will not - it holds onto polished metal and chrome like Dom DeLuise to the last slice of pizza.

Mother's power ball with a mix of metal polish, Turtle Wax rubbing compound (the red, not white) and Meguiar's medium cut cleaner slathered on.

Dang, those are excellently priced. Mine ran closer to $10.00 or $11.00 USD per, IIRC. I don't even remember where I got mine, but I don't care after seeing this. Where were you when I was ordering these stevie? What was shipping?

Yeah, I was pretty excited when I found that site. Sorry I didn't share it sooner. -- and it was your fault for letting me find it after you told me what they were...

Shipping was a little over $6 IIRC. I think I paid a little over $20 for the two that hold that coupler in place, and two for intercooler hoses - shipped.

It was FAST shipping too. I will def. order from there again.
