yeah, I think I'd leave them raw if they're polished and show us that engine pic again.
Just like the heads add a 3rd "bling" color, I'd want another focal point in the same finish to finish it all off.

Easter basket it up! Teal for the fuel rails for sure. They are normally a bright color it seems.
The rails are currently grey. I'll strip one down tonight if I have time and put them both on the motor and pose the question again.

Well no pictures tonight. I got the intake and valve covers bolted on, and clear coated the a/c compressor bracket.

Momma is getting annoyed at my garage time, need to dial it back some.

The problem is finding a usable device. I don't want to use my current work laptop again, but I (broke company policy) kept my old one. It's stored away at the house, but I think it bricked, assuming that I can even remember the login. Im contemplating buying a cheap tablet to mount on the dash.
Come to DFW this weekend to have a beer with Dave and Me... Bring your brick and I'll try to get it working.

I’m coming on Wednesday and then over night next week
hmmmm, Wife flies back in Wednesday night but not till late so I'm stuck at home. You're welcome to come see my pile and sniff gas fumes as I drop the tank and hopefully replace the pump if you're here in the late afternoon/early evening.

Next week would be better. My day trips are usually short and hectic. Fly up at 7 and home at 4:30. But I'll definitely check in with you next week.

I can relate to that. Cant wait for my radiator to show up on the porch this week. The fire will make people think Russia bombed us.
As can I. Wifey is begrudgingly tolerating my air compressor purchase. I don't feel too bad about dropping almost $500 on a compressor because she's getting a $300 microwave this week. Tit for tat.

Dave is going to be in DFW?

Who else is in the DFW area? We could have a little Stangnet beer lunch social.
You gonna be in DFW? What day would this lunch social be? I'll be in town with the wife to visit the in-laws. Might be able to steal away some free time?
