painted engine area
ok let the bashing begin, this is about the best place i could think of to put the stickers, not like anyone will see them unless i open the Hood, kinda a sleeper thing, painted the clips ford red, while the rest was blue

I give you props for effort. Its that powder blue color with the assorment of other colors that throws it. Your engine bay is very clean and I hardly see people who keep their bays so clean thumbsup but the arangements in color is a bit off.

If you are unhappy with the final outcome - might I sugest going with graphics all of the same color... check out http://www.VinylMayhem.com and switch all your graphics to either WHITE or SILVER and I think you will have a show-stopper in your hands thumbsup thumbsup

i had the strut bar before i saw the springs, otherwise under my Hood would be red. oh well. it kinda works because of the positive battery cover, and the vvt-i on the cover. i wanted something to break up the huge expanse of blue on the cover, it needs something. i seen it blank, and it does not look right

just adjust it and it wont "Creak" anymore... use the large allen wrench that came with it. unscrew the two nuts at either side. have a friend grab the strutbar from the middle and then make them lean back - so they would be pulling the bar away from your car... now as they are doing this, re-tighten the nuts with the allen wrench... then go around and re-tighten ALL of the visable nuts around the bar so that they are secure. No more noises thumbsup

put your roll call right above the Hood scoop part...
i have about 4 stickers there for roll call...
you can only see them when under the Hood...
but the roll call is for any mods to the car but exterior.
