Hey guys, I just removed my intake to clean the runners and was thinking about doing a little painting under the hood while it was torn apart. I was wondering if anyone has done some painting under the hood and would post pics so I can get some ideas. Or if you guys think it looks cheesy let me know. Thanks

I don't have any pictures myself, but I've seen some that look real nice. Keep it simple and go for it.

I painted my Valve Covers Red, My intake red, and my upper intake Black.





Kinda hard to see, but doing subtle changes does make the bay look good.

Looks good! I'm going to check on getting my intake and some of the brackets powder coated....just don't know what color yet. Still would like to see more pics from others. :)

The forum has some technical issues right now. When you hit the post button, it takes a while sometimes. If you hit post a second time, it will seem like it worked just fine, but in reality it posted twice.

I just finished painting my steeda CAI Sonic Blue. Valve covers and other misc bits (COPs...thanks for the idea tinkerbell!) will be done in mid May when I install the cams.
I kinda rushed it, and my car is Vista Blue, but I think it looks ok. I do love the crinkle finish, though, and I may change to that when I do the valve covers...

What do you think?
