Yours look good.

I wish I hadn't painted my plastics, because I did such a good job painting them. Since I did such a good job and sine they're so shiney, I dont want to get them dirty so I hadn't installed them back on...

yeah... my painted plastics are bad from taking them in and out. I think I might just break down and buy the IPT pieces.

engine degreaser...all purpose cleaner...we have some kind of shit at toyota that is really strong and takes everything off...then you can shine stuff up if you like..and air dry the engine bay with air hose or leaf blower..

you guys have done terrific jobs painting your plastics in the engine bay.

but, is there a manufacturer out there that has colored plastic replacement pieces for the engine bay?

just wondering...
