Ok I already painted my interior and I am in the process of painting my drums and calipers. What other little things are there that I can paint?

It isn't painting.. but there is always things like clear or smoked corner lenses. about $20 on ebay will get you a pair. A shorty antenna makes a pretty good improvement. I have the steeda triple chrome one.. little expensive but I like it the best of what is available. There is also billet aluminum AC knobs and cigarette lighter that are fairly inexpensive. Diamond plate floormats make a pretty big difference in the interior as well, but are usually kind of pricey.

Imagination is the only limiting factor here.

I made my own shorty. Cut it in half and glued a tip on it. Looks great.

Paint the engine lift brackets before they rust. Looks really ugly under the hood when they do.

Keep the engine detailed, its easy to keep it nice, hard to bring it back.

I already have a shorty but thanks for the ideas, What are engine lift brackets? Is there any way to paint the dome light trim? I am scared I will break the light if I try to take it out.

Open the hood. Sticking above the valve cover on a zetec are two bare steel brackets. Ive noticed on cars a couple years old they are rusted. Prime and paint them before they get ugly. Rust really destroys a nice engine compartment.

All you have to do is use a small flat head screwdriver to get the light part out...after it is out there are two phillips screws holding the trim plate it, just take those out and paint it as you wish...I did mine and I had no problems...Peace
