Nice clean pics! Engine bay looks great now!

Don't you wish that GM didn't have so much trouble with the early clear coatings? Especially on the reds. It'* a constant concern for those with that color. However, yours looks better than some and you cleaned it up well.

Looking good John...

Much better and those coils look right at home.

Are those plug wires in need of a plastic loom so they don't get chopped by the fans?

Lash: Thanks! Yeah I wish it was a bit better. But once I have the money I will take it to have the rust repaired and have the whole body repainted with all of those new UV protectants and integrated as well as top coat of clear coat. But she is lookin pretty good for her age eh?
Mike: Yep! But shes not clean enough yet. That clean job was a 15 min one. I just went and got some simple green. NOW shes gonna be clean..I will post some cleaner pics when I have time to re wash that engine.
Jay: Yah I know, isint it awful? I used a nice thick coating of Gold Class so it should stop it kinda..for now anyways. I have a garage, but it is filled with stuff....i outght to clean it and keep her in there...ESPECIALLY in this hot summer sun...thanks for the tip!
Boosty:Thanks! Yah don't they? Lookin GREAT! car runs amazing with em too! As for the plug wires...well on my year, the fan is on the other side...so its nowhere near that cooling fan. (should I install an extra fan on that side?) But I have new plug wires I should install.

I still have to clean the wheels...they are NASTY...i will take a couple pics of the wheels and tires after they are cleaned and dressed.

Thanks again guys for the comments!

Also, should I have those on the coil points any other way? I could not think of any other way. But if someone wants to post a pic of their LN3 with swapped packs I want to see the way they have their wires routed.

Engine and bay look awesome, as does the rest of the car....it is funny how once you begin to clean the engine bay, you keep finding little spots that you can do better on and it becomes an obsession

Good job!
