Engine bay shave/wire tuck project

Wanted to start a project.
Was looking under the hood of the car this weekend and saw how filthy it was. Covered with oil and dirt everywhere. Since I was trying to clean the engine bay, I decided to start an engine bay shave and wire tuck. I'm still learning and figuring things out, as this is the first time I do any engine bay shave/tucks.
Have been progressing thru the weekend taking things apart, but have not taken many pictures yet.
I will upload some of the pics I have taken so far.

Why not just keep this in your progression page?

Only one rim is scratched off, scratched it on purpose while trying to remove wheel with missing wheel lock key.

again, why not just keep this in your progression page and update that?

No offense, but shaved bays and wire tucks are nothing new. I'll follow your progression page but this serves no purpose.

Re: Engine bay shave/wire tuck project

Seriously why just not leave the parts under the hood where they are supposed to be?
