Rick, I totally agree that off-the-shelf spray-can paint from Ace Hardware is great. The air filter canister of my '69 1750 Spider (see below) is painted Ace Hardware "machinery gray", which is quite close to the original color.

Another $800 car that I'll take credit for... Craig, did all the work between drives of 200mph at BSF and flying model A/C. Nice one Craig!

Here's my Sept. 1960 Veloce Spider. All stock except for the powder-coated air filter can, done by a PO, and some Les-Hurlock wiring improvements around the coil.

Ok, question for you guys. The way the air tubes on my car are located is just like the pasenger side, in from the fender and right to the fire wall. Then for the intake it comes all the way from the nose of the car and into the air cleaner. I notice that most cars come from the nose of the car all the way back to the fire wall and then for the intake it's just like the car above. What way is correct?

Someone will chime in with the "right" answer, but there was been confusion on this since the cars were new. If you look at period road tests, the cars had the tubes both ways even then.

Andrews comment is then the "right" answer. All you need do is see where your cars Sn is in relation to the two variations. Papajam may be able to help here, as well as contacting owners for numbers from this thread.
There are some really nice examples here of very nice engine compartments! I enjoy the various owners modesty! These are ALL VERY NICE!

Andrew has it right. The "fresh" air to the filter is the coldest. The "fresh" air to the driver is the warmest (engine bay).When in doubt check the bible--first the parts manual; second the owners manual (p.4) of the 1961 manual in this case. The 750 owners manual doesn't show it. This is the best arrangement to avoid too tight of bend radii
