    Thanks guys hopefully it won't be raining tomorrow and maybe I can finally get this dang thing bolted on @84Ttop those Allen head bolts you sent with the covers do they fit the heads? I haven't checked but they kinda look smallish

    They should fit the heads just fine. The valve cover bolts are a standard size. (The bolts I sent are the ones that come with the covers)

    These covers require at least 3/8" spacer so I went ahead and got a 1" spacer lol

    So it was nice enough outside yayyy!!! Hurray yayyy... So I started getting the new covers furnished by nick @84Ttop and powder coated by custom funchionz. So on with some pics.

    The drivers side was a pain in the azz because of the heater tube.
    image.jpg
    This is how I routed the hoses for the catch can setup couldn't run them up in parallel with the end tank but I just did the same to the passenger side to make it symmetrical.
    image.jpg
    Here's the catch can it's in the passenger wheel well yes I know I may hit them with my tire if I do I will replace the straight connectors with a set of 45? Fittings image.jpg
    Here's how the hose was run over to the can I attached two hose seperators one by the valve covers really actually behind it and one close to the hole where the hoses pass through.
