Default Some better pics of Faeflora's car

These are some pics the fabricator guy Joe took of my car. He did the welding on my intake, some polishing, and the coil tray. This is the closest I've come to a photoshoot so far. All the pics in my build thread suck. So here are some better ones.

That's starting to look clean, especially this shot:


But what's that coiled mass in the back right? Also you have purple pipes, green MC sock, red spark wires, blue fittings, teal engine bay, polished intake manifold, and a black valve cover.

Pick something.

He enjoys rainbows like a gay.

Needs more close up shots of the frame rails.

Jk, looking damn good bro.

Yah I wasn't expecting pictures to be taken. Those wires are the 02 sensor and some vacuum hoses I use for troubleshooting and crap. Going to move em at some point.

As for the color scheme, yeah, I got the brake fluid bootie for fun. I think I am going to just go for black and silver with some accent colors. May do away with the purple pipe.

How long have I been telling you that your skittle-**** pipe needs to be changed. Otherwise, that is a 180 from the way it did look. Good work.

As much as I'd like to post something witty and insulting, I must say: it has come a long way, and has a ways to go, but you're failing a lot less lately, and the engine bay went from a clusterfuck of gayness to pretty clean gayness. Get rid of the smurf **** piping and you'll have a clean engine bay.

Good **** mayne. I'm starting to like it

Cut the BOV hose down a bit and remove the nest of wires by the clutch MC. Other then those two things, your engine bay is actually surprisingly clean!

Yah I think an aluminum flange came with my TIAL bov and that's why BEGI used the extension pipe. TIAL does sell steel ones though. If I keep the pipes I'll get a steel flange put on der.

As for the nest of wires, where else would my pet rat sleep?

Must say, the wire tuck sure makes a difference (bird's nest by the MC excluded).

The purple inlet pipe screams "I know what I like so f*** off!" I'd keep it just for that.

A hell of a lot cleaner than my engine bay. Nice car.
