Great job on the engine bay. It looks like a text-book restoration job.
New brake lines are a nice touch, too.

I see that you have chrome-plated varios parts (camshaft-pulleys, SAI components, coolant pipe) and it looks great - what procedure was used to do this. Just one detail - the ending of the coolant pipe, where the coolant rubber hose is attached on -> it would be better if it was protected from chroming, as this surely has a lower friciton than original finishing, resulting in a higher risk of slipping a hose from it.

Also, I see that you used chromed pipes for wiring 'casings' -> did you reroute the driver side engine loom (starter, multiram, EGR)? As it originally goes at the front of the engine (just below pulleys) to the fuse/relay/ECU box.               EDIT: I see now, the ECU box is moved below the windshield.

The cam sprockets and coolant pipes are just polished. So it wouldn't increase tolerances on sprockets and coolant pipe is stainless steel so shines up lovely.

Yea that is another stainless steel pipe that runs around engine. Loom is already in there.

Thought the fuse box would leave engine bay a lot neater if it was outta there. Battery also in the boot
