I was wondering what everyone has done to make their bay look pretty. I know there are a lot of things that can be done, shave it, tuck it and ad some bling. I was wanting to make under the hood look cleaner with out breaking the bank.

Here is how it looks as is. I already ordered the rally tech bolt kit and some hood struts i was thinking maybe a couple after market caps, move the battery, ditch the abs. Also I wanted to tuck some wires and maybe move the fuse box and windshield wiper tank but dont know the best way to go about it.

Is there any way to relocate the power steering pump reservoir. Also is there anybody that makes nice looking caps for like the hydro clutch fluid and break fluid reservoir.

I have blinged my reservoir caps out with some JDM Eifel/L'aile cap covers and replaced the oil filler cap and Battery tie-down with Prodrive billet items.
The JDM in-fender coolant overfill tank also cleans up the bay significantly.



One day I'll pull the ABS ctrl module out which should also help clean up the bay a bit (Still have to buy OEM non ABS hardlines)

The rallytech bolt kit is nice, I have it in my car.

-replace or paint all your reservoir caps and dip sticks
-rad shroud + Alt cover
-paint washer fluid bottle (or maybe make a aluminum one)
-just start pulling brackets off and having them powder coated
-Like Jwalker paint/powder your header tank top
-Paint/powder PS Pump
-Polish or paint ac compressor and alternator
-Paint engine bay
-Aftermarket FPR + Rails + SS Lines
-SS PS pump lines

If you dont want to tuck I always thought sleeving the wiring like they do for computers would look pretty damn cool.

I went and got 20ft of a 3 gauge that I am going to use that I got from home depot. Its thicker than the stock cable plus instead of having a bunch of thin wire stands to make it up its actually like 10 really thick copper wires put together.

ORW (off road warehouse) used to sell a nice battery tray designed for optimas that was made of steel with a locking lid so that the battery doesn't fly off in case of a rollover. I bought one with aims to do the battery relocation. I ended up selling it though.
