Default Rainy day so I detailed the eng bay

It has been raining for 24 hrs here in N Tx so I thought I would clean my eng bay. Took the air filter and rad cover off and cleaned between the condenser and rad. What a mess...grass leaves and lots of road debris.

Still looks pretty good for being a daily driver with 93,000 miles and 5 yrs old.
Steve at Airbrushinc did a fantastic job!!

What do you think? Flame suit on.

That airbrush on the airbridge is killer! No so hot on the flames IMO, but great work nonetheless. Very cool!

Looks great. How long did you spend detailing?

It has been awhile since I detailed the engine compartment on my Vette. I need to do mine, and will probably do so in a few weeks.

Spent about 2 hrs. Need to do a little more, but it looks OK.
