    This is frightening looking. And I'm not talking about the scratched up paint. Where is the rubber grommet that protects the wires from being rubbed bare by the sheet metal?

    still working on the engine bay but gonna wait til the new year to buy more pieces and cant put interior back in because i need to put in some torque boxes. so that will probably be next on the to do list to be able to get the interior back together.

    Wow that intake really does look badass! You should do the valve covers the same way.

    Thanks for the tag mike,...I'm glad you think it important enough to ask for my thoughts.

    The intake and console look great. Beware though, that mad splatter technique is a path you have to walk carefully not to over do. I do agree w/ Nic, you should do the valve covers as well.

    Agreed. A hint to carry the engine compartment into the interior and let it go. Too much will get tacky. A little is nice custom.

    Yes the center frame was big to drag the color inside the car without being to much

    The console looks great. :nice: The intake ... eh... Not so much. But that's just me. BTW, that fan in the background of the console pic needs to be dusted. :scratch:
