Engine bay details
I am trying to figure out what I need to get my truck looking better. Some of the pictures here, http://1957-60fords.forumotion.com/t79-need-some-engine-bay-photos, are helping. Does anyone have some different ideas?

Are you wanting an original or semi-original look?If so,sometimes just elbow grease ,rattle-cans,and some good cleaners will work wonders.
1.Thoroughly clean/degrease the engine bay.
2.Remove the peripherals, such as generator and brackets, fan-blade and spacer, crank-case breather assy. etc.Spray-paint them.
3.Install fresh new rubber hoses and clamps, or just polish the clamps.
4.Take a good cleaner/degreaser to the spark-plug wires,or put on fresh wires.
5.Re-paint the valve-covers and air cleaner.If you want, mask-off and paint the intake.
6.Clean and paint the voltage regulator and horn relay.
7.Scrub the battery and repaint the battery tray.Replace the battery and starter cables.
8.Order yourself a few reproduction engine-bay decals from one of the catalogs,and apply them.
9. Now,watch everything begin to slowly get dirty again.

There are quite a few engine bay shot in the galleries here but you have to wade thru them to find what you want.
Here's one of my junker.
