Decided to snap some close up pics since I took off intake and cold side IC pipe to paint them so they closer match my valve covers...i.e satin finish

I am an engine bay picture junkie.......











All put back together...I still need to paint hot side IC pipe below intake and compressor housing to match....But that pipe is a PITA to get out and put back in without scratching it...It will finish off the blacked out look....Would like to get water neck painted as well..

Take a look through when you get a chance I tried to provide as many pics as possible for the transformation since the first day I brought it home.

Not quite sure I want to get it to a dyno at some point this year.

Finished up some more engine parts for black theme.....Compressor Housing and IC hot side pipe....I will take off the breather filter and paint the ends of it to match...I ran out of paint to do it

Not sure of which kind of turbo blanket to get....I think the DEI Titanium would go nice with color combo or a black PTP turbo blanket....

Acquired some more tools for the garage...



I started working on the passenger side and I am happy with the results so far I was able to get the lips pressed completely flat...This was my first time using a fender roller but I still need to massage them out a little bit more as I got a few areas to hit again







With my 22 year old paint it was literally impossible to prevent it from cracking.....Im not to worried about the paint at this point anyways....

The paint always cracks. Be careful on the rear fenders. It's really easy to dimple the quarters and you'll be pissed.

Thanks....I thought the rear was easier to do than the front was...but I figured out the technique on the back so the rest should only get better...

Test fitting some bbs reps.....18x10 +25 front an rear.....


FRONT....18x10 +25.....fenders rolled flat...Fronts would take to much work and stretched tires and I not going for that look....prob get an 8.5 or 9 in same offset









REAR.....18x10 +25.....fenders rolled flat..Rear fits perfect..
