since my car has been in pieces... here is what my free time at night has been dedicated too.

I am a noob at paiting. But i think these turned out pretty well..

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.

nope.. im not goin past 2.8

and hey.. i did that whole thing in like 2 days.. so it isnt perfect... just something to spicen it up a little. And about the whole snout... well i didnt wanna take off the bolts becuase.

1) is there a gasket there that needsreplacing
2) will the s/c oil come out

But meh.. its just a little something something.

like i said.. im not good at painting. :(

That Im unsure of. You can mask it and do it that way. Just trying ti help you out.

The valve covers look good.

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.

spray can clear is a total waste imo. it goes flat in less then 6 months.
