Well here are a couple of things I do, that are pretty easy, and seem to look good.
1. Go on internet, and search for the car you are detailing. This should get you a number of sites with pictures that will show you details about the car. For the Engine, I would look at the Distributor and Coil wiring, and also where the Heater hoses come out of the engine and go into the firewall.

2. Find some wire for the sparkplug/distributor that seems to be the correct size you want.

3. Now what I do that is in-expensive, is I drill out the distributor cap with a drill bit that is just a little bit smaller than the outside size of the cap. Make a pocket. Now, twist together your 9 wires for the sparkplug + coil and expoxy them into the cap. Once dry you can then glue them into the correct location of the Coil and the sparkplugs (again, review the pictures you found on the internet.)

4. For the Heater hoses, drill out the locations in the engine block (from your reseach pictures) and hole in the firewall, and glue in appropriate sized wire for the hoses.

5. Paint battery, and any other detail items you can see so they are visiable.

6. I do a "wash" of the radiator (this is a mix of One part silver paint to about Five parts thiner and lighly paint over the radiator and this thin mixture will fill in and leave a nice detail.

That seems to be the general items most of us do on the engine detailing unless you have a lot of time and talent, then you could also try and do additional electrical wireing, but that is a whole lot of other work, and research to find pictures.

Hope this helps my friend.Big Smile
