That looks like the front edge of a splash shield (for certain values of "front"). You're right that it is protecting things coming up from below: splashes, sand and general road gunk. It's also likely part of the aerodynamics of the vehicle (admittedly a very small part). The link above is to an example vendor (who's selling the linked part for ...

I would refer to it as a CV (constant velocity) joint spider.

Distributor, it's what provides the electrical energy to the spark plugs at the correct time.

It is a guide for the window as it closes. It is only needed for closing the window when traveling at higher speeds as the airflow sucks the window outward. Why you see it on cheaper cars probably has to do with the thickness of the glass and the build of the window frame.

It is a ground, and as Digital Lightcraft "Ground Bolt" sounds reasonable. The picture below show another view from the same car. You can see from the picture that it is indeed a terminal that's bolted to the chassis.

This is a 1967 Camaro which Chip Foose rebuilt on an episode of Overhaulin'. The sign in the background is the clue. EDIT: I guess I could tell you how to tell this is a '67 with or without knowing Chip Foose did this build :-) If you know anything about Camaros, you can tell this is a 1st gen by its angular cuts. The 2nd gens are not angular and are a lot ...

Those are definitely devices for holding hair in place. As for what purpose (if any) they were serving in your motorcycle, one can only guess!

This appears to be a dust shield (or sometimes called a backing plate) for the rotor on the disk brake system. It would cover the back side of the rotor. You would be able to see it if you got under the car and looked at the rotor from the back side. I'm not positive about this, though, as this piece is pretty mangled.

Hard to say without knowing the car, but based on previous experience, its likely to be "Ground Bolt" IE ground / earth (-) for the electrical system to the chassis/shell/monocoque

There are several products which would probably be, not only easier, but work better than painting. These products include such things as Black Wow, 303 products, or even Meguiars Ultimate Black. I personally would take the course of least resistance, namely: 1) try one of these products, 2) painting the pieces, and then 3) replacement if all else fails. Why ...

My first thought is that they are a spacer or shim to prevent the battery from sliding back and forth in the battery box.

Yes, this is a 1967 model as my grand father had the same model that I had seen in the photo album of our family members.

Distributor cap, DO NOT switch the cables around

When you reconnected it, did you just slip it on or did you push it on until it "clicked"? That's a snap connection. If it's worn so much that it won't snap on any more, you could try running a little spring from that hook thing to the place where the cable sheath stops at that steel bracket (the one with both cables routed through it). The cable core ...

You can buy a can of matte or satin finish paint and simply spray them. The best option is to remove them completely, spray, and then put them back. You don't want to get paint on your windows or panels. Otherwise, you'll want to use masking tape and newspaper and thoroughly cover every surface around the part you want to spray. Those things, and any other ...

specify your engine please, do you have petrol or diesel engine, best would be to know exact month and year of made, C4 model parts are updated on 10/06, that´s maybe your issue, because you searched for parts from 10/06+ but your car spec is from before this date, write us how many kw/Hp your engine is. Then we could help you better, more specs you provide ...

This is a roots style supercharger. Unlike the turbocharger you mention, the supercharger (or "blower") is driven directly by the crankshaft of the engine, via a large belt. Turbos use the exhaust gases to perform the same task. The task at hand is to force more air into the engine than the engine could normally suck in on its own. By doing this, it makes ...

Going purely on the fact that it's a Toyota and that part looks very similar to one in the glove box of my Prius, yes, it's the damper. And I can confirm that the damper includes a spring, a couple of small wheels, and string. The only downside to not replacing it is that opening the glove box becomes a fairly rough experience. I finally bought one when I ...

That is normally called something close to the "Audi A4 shifter trim." If you google for relevant images, you see a whole variety of pieces that look like your outline. Here is an example (from this vendor's site):
