    Cheap Mod - Coil Covers...

    I love cheap Mods. I’ve been looking at a set of painted Coil Covers on EBay they would do wonders for the boring nature of the VooDoo beast we have under the hood. Only problem is the $$, too much for a couple pieces of plastic. Well I came up with the answer, $4.99 can of Red Rustolium and a little time.

    A little anal, but brings out the engine?

    That will give you more reasons to open up the hood

    Looks great. It puzzles me that Ford didn't dress the engine up more. With the engine being the centerpiece of the car, it would be a natural.

    Yes I agree. The brakes are a better conversation piece. I still need to pull the trigger on a coolant overflow bottle. Isn’t that thing ugly? Got a black aluminum one in my sites (Mishimoto).

    I'm sure Ford sees this car as a total utility vehicle. You don't need it to look nice to work well on the track. Besides, it's more fun to dress things up as you would like it.

    I get the utility aspect of it, all about function. Personally, I don't care about bling. I do track the car and run in advanced groups. It just seems that Ford could have easily added some "wow factor" under the hood. Not a big deal, because I only open the hood to check on things between track sessions.

    Jim looks good and much neater job than I would have done I did get the JLT and they did a great job as well. Their paint quality is really nice. Post a pic of the coolant bottle when you have the chance as I'll likely do that mod as well. We checked out a 2017 GT350 at Sunday's meet with an aluminum Mishimoto recovery tank...looked good but I'd personally prefer the black that you are considering...
