before anyone says a damn thing, i know my bay is filthy. but i just did the swap, and haven't washed the car since. that, and doing a swap off a dirt road really collects some dust after about 2 weeks... :shrug

anyway, painted the battery hold down thing, radiator bracket, clutch fluid resivour cap, wiper fluid resivour cap, and valve cover.




whatcha think?

dont know how i could have been more clear than this:

:p

basically, everything gold got painted today. clutch and wiper fluid resivour caps are harder to notice, as they're on the dark side of the car. hoses came with the intake, i'm not real fond of them... but at least they came honda red!

i think it looks pretty good, now get a silver or carbon fiber spark plug cover and use some simple green and it'll look sweet

i dont think they make plug covers for non vtecs, at least not that i can find.

Looks fine to me. It's hard to ask such a question though, being that any answer given is subjective to the next guy.
that's why i'm not bent outta shape about turbotious kid's response. more just showcasing than worried about whether anyone liked it or not

valve cover looks great, i woulda done the rest black, look alot better than my swap, now i gotta pull the whole damn thing i think, due to headgasket, i the motor place to give me a diff motor, then this time im gonna really clean it up and detail stuff, strip the funny texture off my vlve cover an go annodized red i think,so what are u gonna do next to it?? paint wise?

well, everything was black already, and i though it would look better if most of the components matched, so i started pulling off random shit and painting it. i'm going to do more, but not for a little while, have alot of shit going on right now and have to get my old engine dismantled so i can make some money back from the swap.

but thanks for the compliments :)

nah not for an LS. Anyway, it turned out really good bro. Personally, not my color, but it does add really nice accents to the bay, and from what i can see it looks like you did a killer job painting it too.

It looks good man but still needs a little more work. I painted under my hood just cuz and I couldn't stop. I don't know if it was the paint fumes or what but it got addictive.
