Soooo, some have asked(mostly female) me about color choise of my engine bay...

Well, answer isnt that simple. I tryed that one red color but that failed. And I realized that I wont want to do that, many have painted their engine red...

I figured that I wanted to do something different. Blue was choosen cause of those few components. Then I realized that bronze looks good with blue. And most parts are brushed aluminium and silver anyways...

We chatted in out RotaryGarage crew lots of different color scenes just for fun. I realized that I havent seen much engine bays done in Steampunk theme. And I like that stuff... So, there you go

I didnt want to just paint stuff to silver. I wanted to show that parts really are hand polished and there is some effort done to them. Hopefully it comes together and looks good...

Todays progress...

Got my AN oil feeds. Local guy did them for me. Some fittings are too thight tho. Return from turbo to engine was really tight fit with these components. And about 5 cm too short, thats my bad...

Exhaust manifold is wrapped. Oil cooler is on its places. Even got radiator fitted to its original position. However, screamer pipe wont fit...
