No complaint as I have become used to it.

I'm proud of mine. A little paint and a couple days cleaning and detailing.

Re: lets see your engine bay photos

Here's an under-hood progress (or bonnet, lol) shot of my '64 Gal. Nuttin' fancy or hi-tech....and still much more planned over the winter and into 2013 ....as the budget allows. I've only owned the car for one yr (coming up on 9/15).
The 'theme' or look I am shooting for is: "what I woulda done to a car circa late 60s (if I had been old enough, that is, lol). Ask any questions you like, or critique it -it's all good. Obviously, washable blue air filter elements weren't around in 1969 -the blue looked soo cool against the car's color, I acquiesced, hehe. The GT v/c's are 'drivers' I had so I could replace the Edelbrocks that came on it.

Hope this helps ya. Norm in Minnesota

Re: lets see your engine bay photos

Here's another angle -plus, that 1st pic looks a little dark once I posted it.

Cheers!

Re: lets see your engine bay photos

And for something different!!
Doesn't look like this anymore as it was done in '04 so now it's the typical oil, paint flake and burn. I forgot to put the radiator cap on it's blue.

Re: lets see your engine bay photos

Don't know why, but this is the only site that I have trouble uploading pictures.

Upload starts, little green bar starts to expand, but then it hits a certain point, bar goes solid green, but no picture.
