Default a splash of color under the hood...

finally got some new paint in the engine bay. Advanced Auto had a buy one/get one sale on High Temp paint, so I went for it. I'm still waiting on the new oil cap, painting the strut bar and a few other minor details. (it keeps raining)

Before:


After:


I'm still at a stand still on the valve covers, I dont know if I want to go with Black with Red stripes (the original plan) or go with the chrome covers they have at Advanced.

I would go with red/black with the valve covers. It would just flow well with the overall theme under there.
