That looks great.
Your air filter housing looks like mine, circa 1970?
Is the colour it is now painted original?
My housing was a mid blue colour, but when I applied paint stripper it looked to be silver or grey underneath.

Hi Broadsword, the 1438 TC used a gray color, I used "machinery gray" powder coat on this one and I have used paint on others in the past. It looks about right to me.

Needs polished stainless radiator hoses for icing on the cake I think Mark. I have the heater hoses. I'll be getting the radiator hoses soon. Still it's nice and clean! :)

Cheers!

My engine is now bay finally finished, the overheating was caused by the Chinese knock-off fan that came with the car. I therefore bought a quality SPAL fan that solved the problem, along with a Zircotec coated exhaust manifold that kept the under bonnet temperatures down.

Nice neat work.

I hope you won't mind me commenting, but please be careful not having a cam cover. Aside from the obvious dangers of catching clothing, tools or a finger, if a stone gets flicked up it could cause the timing belt to slip with potentially disastrous results!

Hey, that's neat. I thought it was my engine bay when I first saw it!

What color should the engine and transmission be. I can not tell from the pictures. Mine was painted dark red when I got it.

I hope I can get my engine bay looking half as look as these. Great work guys.

Thanks, Larry
