Looks great ! I've spent a lot of time on routing wires, hoses and such and making the motor the focus...it's the little details like painting your edelbrock letters that get noticed as a cool touch I know people have commented on my pinstriped vale covers and manifold lettering paint. Braided hoses would look good or just the nice ends from the braided hoses on the rubber, I've seen that before. I also take the brand labels off of everything, I do get a little anal sometimes but in the end it's worth it (y)

It was all a good learning experience. Ive lived with it looking horrible for well over a year, because I didn't know what my ability would be to improve it, while in the car. At the end of the day, it was a quick and painless process. I just had to take the first step. I hope to continue the progress with the rest of the engine bay.
It's looking nice, here's the hose ends I saw if you don't want to go all steel braided, this guy won two best of shows I was at this summer and the car is to die for! And he drives it to the shows, I think he spent three days just routing the battery cables, I would Google images and take mental notes at shows and just try to keep things

cleaned up or hide wires and pay attention to details and people really notice like this guys engine bay, very clean detailed and not too flashy except for the 6 webber's 😉 I know I'll probably get bbq'd posting a Chevy but I love those models. Keep up the good work 👍

You can just buy the black clamp on end nuts for 15.00 each like my chrome ones and put the screw down out of site and shine up the hoses, finishes off the hose end nice, looking better than an exposed hose clamp (y)
