Hey I was wondering if anyone had a good picture of a restored 79 engine bay, I want to spruce mine up and want a guide line to go by. this is my first C3, I always had C4's. Mine isn't bad the car only has 27,000 miles on it, I just want to make her pretty. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's a couple from an original PC I had. Should be the same (or very close) to your 79'

One of the things missing in the pictures is the cover that goes over the distributor.

Yep, took it off to set the timing and never put it back on. Sold the car and still have the shield.
