Default The "Check engine" engine

All right, my MIL'* on. I can't turn it off until my order from ScanTool.net arrives, so I'm stuck with this feeling of impending doom whenever I stare into its bright yellow engine.

But I noticed something. The engine in the picture has a carbuerator on top and a fan mounted on the back. As far as I've seen, the Pontiac 3800 Series II has neither of those.

Why not just write out "engine" instead of the picture, or in addition to the picture (like on the Fasten Seatbelts lamp)? Or why not just put a more accurate doodle of the actual engine instead?

I took too much time on the wires though, and yes those are 12mm right there. I think they are hooked up right however.


If you want it in your sig thats cool since I copied your sig idea sorta today.
