I did a bit of work on the engine with my Ferrari Enzo model:













As you can see, I painted the cam covers red and put "Ferrari" on them as well as adding more wiring and painting the heat reflective wall in front of the engine. I also fitted some torsion bars and the prop rod that the real car has in the hole between the shocks (see second pic).

I haven't completely finished yet as I have yet to add the carbon fibre detailing but I'll try to get this done tonight and have pictures ready for tomorrow. :cheers

If you haven't seen it already, you can see part 1 of my Enzo mod here

Hey Darren,

I have been studying your pics all day in hopes of replicating some braces. I have some that I think you will like.

They look like metal plates with holes drilled into them to give them a welded look. I have use the Dremel to trim them up so they will fit into place.

I'll post pics as get further long. Thanks for posting thos e pics as the braces really look good :cheers

Here's the final part to my mod, guys.







I added some CF decals to the interior by the sidepods and rear fenders. The photos have a bit too much light as it looks a lot darker when you see it for yourself but I'm pretty happy with the result. :cheers

Darren,

I'm having the hardest time laying that carbon fibre down on the engine compartment. Did you use a heat gun to get it to form?

Chris, Yes that is the CF decal that I designed myself.

Darrick, I didn't use a heat gun as I worried that it may melt the plastic but I used a hair dryer instead. It worked a treat. :cheers
