These are current, engine compartment, inside hood, and maxx evo will receive ppg deltron dbc in Supramania Red, and several coats of Stratoclear this weekend, i hate the darker dingier red from the factory under hood, so it will get the same color as body.:biglaugh:

Okay painting is OVER, under the hood anyway, it turned out so well, I may paint the car myself. I felt bad sanding away at that pearl white paint on oneandgone's old bumper, but it looks much sexier red. (sorry Grant!) I have a couple small runs to wet sand, but it came out real good. Heeeeeeere's the pics::biglaugh:

Thanks! You cant tell with the lighting in that photo, but even the igniter is blingin'. After racking my brain how to setup cop or relocate coils, I decided to leave them in stock location for now, with the cover chopped to cover just the coils, where you can see the v/c's in front(like b4 pic). I think I'm putting the 62-1 back in for now, until MDC finishes my riser for the T-61BB, hopefully soon!! Also running with no p/s cooler, dont think it will hurt for now, not into road racing, planning on mostly strip. Didn't feel the need for big $ adjustable cam gears, so i cleaned up the stockers, they look sweet, basically like brushed aluminum look, and everything is coated with Zoopseal. Much love to my g/f (fiancee) Janet... I have been working 5 weeks str8 like a 2nd job on this , and she never bitches, first woman I ever had so understanding....you're all that babe!

LMAO....Kinda started as a boat anchor, too much angle, I chopped out some of the center, and welded back together. Now seems ok, only ~1/2
" from strut tower, hopefully it won't hit. BTW I got your addy, your I/C is on the way, actually in my trunk, It will be dropped off on my way home from work. THANKS Jon!
