I love the turn around on the engine bay, much better!
A few things I did on my bug was a clear distributor cap, which was neat to check out at night, also did the chrome firewall with louvers and painted the fan shroud to match my base paint. Threw in some strip lights behind the shroud (hooked to the sub output) and with the decklid off at night it was a clean look with a low glow. Ghetto? Maybe, but that was what I deemed cool as a teenager.
