Post Your Engine Bay Pics

Postby TriniGT » July 2nd, 2010, 7:49 am

Not sure if it is a repost but seen it on many a forum but don't think I have seen it here. Post up some pics of your engine bay, really only local pics please. Maybe some before and after pics and what was used to get the job done. Would like to see some of the local talent as I know some guys are really good when it comes to detailing. No pics off the Internet please. Let me start with my previous and current bays,
The good ole faithful GT after I removed the Boost,

Image
My Pewter S15 at some point, a bit messy, haven't seen her since :(,
Image
My ER34 GTT,
Image
My Subject S14.5 Spec SR,
This is a before shot,
Image
Will get an after one at some point. Need to get the pipes chromed and some other brackets and whatnot powder coated. Usually I use something like Clean-Off mixed one to one with water and spray it on and allow to soak for about 30 minutes, it is not harsh on the paint and clear coat like purple blaster is as I have learned from my past episodes. After soaking I use a pressure washer in the spray pattern and wash it off, being careful not to get water where it should not be. After that is done I then use the compressor to blow out all connectors and coilpacks and whatnot. Then I go over plastics with either WD40 or some sort of Amorall very lightly as a thick film collects a lot of dust quickly. After that I will try and maintain it, rainy season is real pressur though.

Haha, please also mention what you use on the engine bay to help accentuate it so that others can follow for their For Sale Commercials. Sweet engine bays thus far.

^^^ The clean did the engine bay a lot of justice. It is so gratifying to lay back and watch the before and after. Nothing like getting in there with the ole cloth and polishing everything up.

Now at least people can at least fix up their engine bay and take some pics. The before and after really does justice.

Boy the new owner wanted it for the past two years I had it. It comes a time when you have to say if yuh willing to pay for it it's yours. Man found the money and came for it, I always say if someone wants it more than you is best yuh sell it befroe something happens to it. Always missed her though, maybe the S14.5 can be something of that stature at some point but lots needed done still. The skyline is still a work in progress but a different kettle of fish, the S15 is so much more sexy IMHO.

Damn MD thing fit like Yam. This is a Cressida right, it resembles the KE70 in so many ways. I have access to my Grandpa's KE70 and it is very original, with some slight body work needed, the JZ is calling me.

Wouldn't mind getting an altezza with a damaged engine and swap in a 2JZ GTE setup, should be fun. Anyway back on topic, engine bay pics please.

Basically a stock, nothing much has changed from since then but for the placement of fuel filter as far as I remember.

Anyone know how to remove the automotive paint without damaging the finish?

Somehow I feel an SiR would take this as the car was just a little peppy but with the big body I feel it would have eventually gave in.
