Love the engine bay as well,lot's of detail, good work.
Everyone says I have too much stuff in there: air con, power steering, battery, wiring etc, etc. but its tidy, full but tidy! When I look at other peolple engine bay's. eg: how do you fill up your washer botle with it under the guard? answer I dont use it!.....Where are your horns..... I dont have any. and the classic. Wont those 18" Simmons make your convertor slip constantly at highway speeds? answer: NO!, and I dont care if it does because I dont drive the car anyway.
The engine bay is there for those item's, It doesn't look to clutered, I've never been one for putting the battery etc in the boot and hidding all the gear, it has to go somewhere, it look's original and clean that's all that matter's.

My philosphy exactly. Taxi drivers put their batteries in the boot to make them last longer. I know heaps of guys who have put theirs in the boot only to have trouble starting the car because of it. Besides I want everyone to see my new trick Oddessy battery that I paid big $$$ for! I also know people who are willing to pay $1000 to have their wiring loom put under the guard! Buggered if I know how you would trobleshoot it if anything went wrong. I used to have 8 relays along my inner guard but i tidied that lot up!
