All of the original screws for the spark-plug-wire covers have broken.
Dealership prices them at $15, each. Anyone have any home-made ideas
for tasteful looking bolts to replace them? I just have some metric
bolts and washers but am thinking of maybe some black allen-head bolts?
Also, the silver lettering on those covers has started to come off.
Best way to repaint? Paint everything silver, then mask the letters and
paint the background black?
The OE "phillips head" nuts that hold down the front of the big air
cover were always missing and I never replaced them. Yesterday, while
fiddling around under the hood, I found one sitting between the jump
post and purge valve. It's been there for at least 18 months. I never
saw it and it never fell out. Huh.
