  9. They look great powder coated! Can't wait to see it on the car!
  10. those covers look killer!
  11. 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
  12. 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)
  13. Ok cool like I said I haven't looked at them
  14. love the covers I may be ordering a set once I am up and running
  15. These covers require at least 3/8" spacer so I went ahead and got a 1" spacer lol
  16. Will never have chrome wheels that's for sure
  17. personally im not a chrome guy either,was just a
    im a painter,i had every color avalable to me,coudnt decide for days....almost painted it same color as yours though,looks good i see....ended up tweeking the emerald green a litte though
  18. I like the emerald green that's the color of my truck black until you get up on it and see it's green

  19. 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.
    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.
    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.
