    Default Anyone got pics of their engine detail?

    I have just done my vacuum hoses and have caught the fever

    I'm thinking about colour coding the battery cover and the boost pipe/rocker plastic cover.

    Has anyone kept the ecotec logo?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default

    Used normal automotive primer/paint and its still perfect on mine... Did do caps in caliper paint, but only because i couldn't find a decent auto match to my callipers and i wanted them the same.

    Still sprayed with a gun once thinned down tho



    When i get the under bonnet steel done, i'm getting the little ecotec rectangle done aswell. Gonna get in engraved possibly with username and griffin?!?
