Engine bay dress up? OK, kinda lame.
I wanted to dress up the engine bay a little, but didn't want to put in the time and effort to do the job like Joe Brosseau did (Awesome job Joe! Come over and do mine!)
So anyway, all the junk I bought for the car this winter all came with stickers and there were some fairly large open areas to apply them. So I did. Take a look. Comments?
It is discrete because it is all under the engine cover and not normally seen, but when you lift the lid, the stickers, along with the chrome coils, really add some color. I often pick up the lid for people who don't know much about Ferrari's (other than that they go fast) and when I do and they see the stickers they seem to think "Wow! This has racing stickers in the engine compartment! This thing is tuned for performance! It must go really really fast!" Ha! I've got them fooled! So what do you think? I can always remove them later.
You may notice that I have not yet installed the rubber boot for the front distributor, actually I am kind of torn. I am thinking about removing the rubber boot for the rear distributor instead. I think the engine has a less "bulky" look without the boots and I don't drive it in the rain anyway. I like the look without the boots. Any thoughts on running without boots?
