... you realize the oversized red wires are garbage and fall apart and the red coils misfire at high RPM.

Looks great Sarah! I painted my engine block orange before I put it in, kind of hard to see it from the top now with everything bolted on and headers installed, etc.

It looks great. My dad did the Camaro'* engine cover, but the paint lifted a little, so it'* still a work in progress. Then he'* got some engine cover decorations for it as well.
