Maybe its because the sample picture is close up while the valve cover is out in the open, but the color looks good tho

Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Installed the valve cover and ground kit today. Under sunlight the color is amazing and I'm really digging it now haha the pearls make it even nicer. Ground kit is pretty messy but it's the best I could do... not sure where else to put the ground block. The grounding points I did was battery-chassis, battery-engine block, battery-strut tower, battery positive-alternator and battery-somewhere under the starter on this little bracket. There was an OEM ground wire that was shredded up so I just replaced it. I have 1 more wire that I can use. Any other suggestions?

I think the VC looks awesome, goes great with a silver car.

Got a link for that ground kit?

Thanks! It really does. I'm planning to get the car wrapped though. I'm not 100% sure what color yet but right now I'm pretty set on that blue kn0x had. I don't want to bite off someone but I really dig that blue haha not sure what other colors would go well.

604 got you on the links haha

Easy but I don't know how to make it look nice LOL I don't have the tools to cut the wires shorter and crimp them again etc. not sure if it's dangerous to leave it like that???

I did notice that my sound system isn't as loud. To get it to sound as loud as volume lvl15 I would have to turn it to like 25. Did I do something wrong? Do I need new terminals?

Yeah I disconnected the battery. I even sanded down the ground to chassis to bare metal. I did lose the settings but I put it back. Maybe I'm just tripping lol I do want to upgrade the terminals though. The OEM ones look jank and the connector that came with the kit doesn't fit very well. What kind of terminal would fit all of those wires??? I also have a wiring harness for my HID kit on there too
