Chuckles, that's about as sanitary as it gets buddy.
Here's the 283 in the '65...
Almost forgot about my Austin Healey, its not souped up but it is clean.
LOVE the firewall.
Here's mine, a Chevy in my regularly driven '55 Buick Special 2-door post. Still some detailing to do, but it's getting there. Air cleaner is a gennie Olds unit shortened and adapted to the Holley carb.
Nuthin' Special, but I like it.
Jeffrey, I just found this thread. Great job! I'm in the thinking stage on my '41 Plymouth, which I will paint a shade of maroon/burgundy. I'm really leaning toward a satin black for the engine compartment with the Mopar painted hemi orange. Any more ideas/pictures/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here's a nicely done flathead.
Nuthin too fancy but clean and presentable .
Any more? I really am trying to figure out the last details of my engine bays.....help!!!
Like I have said before....... not a 100% finished yet (hoseclamps,etc..)but close enough to get the idea.
bear is that airbrushed to look likw that?
any more to add...preferably with out airbrushed rust?
This is pretty sweet
My engine bay is not quite done but this will give you an idea of what it will look like
Awesome pics. Here's mine
sooooo, thats what a $500 32 firewall looks like.
The only pic I have is my avatar...for some reason I can't attach pics. Anyway when I finished the truck the engine compartment looked great...but I drive it alot...and it is impossible to keep clean. By the way, what is the best way to clean polished aluminum? Someone told me white vinagar...but that didn't work. The best thing I've found is simichrome and time.
LIFE'S A GAMBLE......LET EM' ROLL
I think the checkerboard firewall is great - I've never seen it done before and never thought of doing it myself - coolio job man!
Sorry but I don't see anything in the first one besides a great set of headlights. And they sure aren't olds!
One in progress and one down the road
Here are a couple for the inline fans.......the 216 in my 40' Chevy.
my 56. miss that car
