Questions about my engine bay (pictures)

Hello all, I've had my Clio for a while now(3ish+ years) and I'm finally getting round to doing some jobs I always keep my engine bay relatively clean. But there's some bits that scratch at that part of my brain why wife wishes didn't exist.

Engine bay pretty simple.

Is this normal? For it to not be sitting flush? Both sides do this.

What's this thing? And what can I do about its horrible condition? Just paint it with high temp spray?

A few questions here. Is it normal for it to go whiteish like this? Do I need the cover on? Is there a point of it? What spray can I use to get it cleaned up? Don't want fancy colors would like it stock. (or should I get a matched Inlet).
Also is there any guides to painting the inlets?

I think I've asked this question before but where do I get The of these bolts that hold the block of metal that sits in front of the fuel line?

Thank you.

You'll want to get the bolts/studs off Renault, there is a trader on here who can sort you out, then you can get the fuel rail back on.

Just take the engine cover off and you can get access to the inlets, I just used high temp aerosol paint. The bit on the side of the engine is for use with an engine crane, just sand and paint.

And top mounts look normal.

Top mounts are normal? Fair enough. They just look odd. I'll get to sanding at some point then. So I just disconnect the manifold? Like you would to change the sparks? Then just spray? Should I tape anything up or just spray it?

Yeah basically, I just removed it all (engine mount, fuel rail, inlet manifold, engine hoists etc) and taped it up like this, obviously you can't remove the rocker cover.

1, top mounts are normal
2, it's the engine lifting eye. Take it off, paint it.
3, It goes white as it's just aluminium oxidation. Remove the inlets and spray them. Just mask off the mating faces and where plugs/fittings go. Don't need the cover on, it's just for show.
4, fuel rail bolts can still be bought so the guard can be refitted.
