Well it's time to clean and redo my furio engine bay to make it look good!

Going to repaint the bits and bobs currently silver which is flaking away looking tacky.

Going to put my oil filter on which i had in my room for ages, but need a air filter arm without the hole like Dan's where can i get it from?

Any other suggestions?

go for red, its not out any of your car, so it should be hidden away on your bay

07-03-2007, 03:00 PM
id go for a fairly bright blue myself to keep it intune with the rest of the car.

At the moment i got one of each vote, does that mean i'm gonna have a rainbow under the bay?

I used Plasti-kote - fast dry enamel ideal for plastic then put clear laquer on top to stop it from cracking in the future!

Yeah was in March issue of PGTi!

Gonna have the car touched up and sideskirt repaired in the summer might get them to paint the bits the same colour as the body work!

looks good IMO tho id would do the battery cover again, lise the fuse box

c2ology
12-03-2007, 04:49 PM
I really did messed up the battery box big time! I painted the box silver to start of with. Then painted the middle bit green and the front square bit green.

davec2furio
12-03-2007, 05:49 PM
i think it lets the car down tbh. having a cool car with a pretty random engine bay 8O
may look better if the battery cover was redone

Craig
12-03-2007, 05:50 PM

it doesnt really go with the colour of the car but screw it because your bonnets shut most of then time anyway :)

its good work though, and you know you can always change it to another colour when you get bored of it so its all good!
