Looks nice n clean = good!
Engine cover I wouldnt paint; they look alrite on AU models, the EF/EL ones were ugly n didnt say "guess whats under hear" what so ever, more like "big ugly heavy v8, run away!" :lol:

Looks perfect to me, if you want to paint something for that bit extra detail; id do the airbox/battery box/snorkle.

Enjoy.

IMO, the engine cover you could get resprayed in silver with a flake throughout it or even a pearl or something if you like, coloured hoses, or maybe

mine looks like this just to give you an idea. nothing special but i got bored

spray the relays, airbox, intake snorkel the same colour as the engine cover (looks the same as the car too :))

I dunno if you could spray a battery with any amount of success, maybe make a cover for it and spray that instead :P
