Looks good. Gotta work on the snout a bit more. Better get the dremel and polish the SC as well.

I dont know if its the angle or whatever, but it looks like the paint is chipping or something. Also, Id do something with the entire snout. Plus if you want to go past a 2.8 pulley, your gonna have to grind down the snout a bit.

The valve covers is there any gaskets you need to replace if so, how much are they? If its not to expensive to do I'll paint mine as well.

I like the valve covers, havent seen it done like that before.





PS: I think I have an extra set of valve covers at my house . If anyone wants to them to paint, I will sell them to you. $30 shipped.
