I like the look of your engine bay. Is the rocker cover painted silver or is that stripped-back alloy? Is the washer bottle sprayed black or what?

Looking again, i see your plastic grille around your wipers is different to my EBII. Is yours standard EA?

hey yeah the battery is ugly but its a heavy duty one to run my sound system
yeah i sprayed my water bottle black and the rocker cover is just slightly polished alloy
the grill is a standard ea one maybe because its a 30th annaversary it might be different im not to sure it could do with some armor oil though
i need to do a propper clean on the engine bay get a new rocker cover and paint it midnight blue, polish the manifold and re paint the water bottle and top up tank silver

auto sol is sold in super "cheap auto" and "auto one" stores.. cost $10.00-$11.00 dollars per aluminium tube of it.. looks like the tooth paste tubes... -doesnt taste as good though....

works great on metal obects that have been sabded.. ive used it alot on my bay... (pics in gallery)

you could give the rocker cover a bit of a rub backk but at where its at now start with 600 grit-800-1200-1600-2000-2500-3000 then auto sol it.. and use a beffing wheel on it... will look great...

with the fuel rail.. mo need for sanding as there is no aluminum castin on it.. just straight auto sol the fuel rail...
