Hi, hows your knuckles mate after all the pollishing im sure their sore as hell lol,
Your engine bay looks excellent, if possible an aluminium or brushed stainless steel remake of the slam plate would really make it shine along with your polished manifold cover would look mint, any good steel fabricator should be able to make you up one for less than 50 using your original one as a template. Happy Modding

yeah that was heat reflective stuff thats being replaced in next two weeks with silver carbon fibre jobs as well as the battery cover that was a poor attempt that one never liked it thats why i ordered up some carbon fibre to redo it all properly

Did someone mention Carbon-Fibre? Check thes batterys out Bralle Battery the lightest car battery;s on the marcket cased in real carbon fibre, not sure what size would be needed but would shave pounds off the front end. Also when removing the tape from your engine bay i sinceerly recommend using this stuffClick Here it stinks of oranges but works wonders, wipe clean surface, doesnt strip paint just sticky tape and badges i used it to de-badge abd de-side strip my starlet.

the pepper red ive seen on other fords isnt metallic mine is and with a good polish on it it stays shiny for weeks and the colour really shows up the badge was blacked out blue on red wasnt working and the coloured gel ones i wasnt keen on couldnt get the colours i wanted
