    Default What you guys think - wrinkle black cool?

    I think this contrasts with my engine setup much better than the all-silver and the gold one. The semi chrome engine block/head will contrast awesome with the wrinkle black valve cover and oil filter housing.









    I am still looking for a bosch alternator housing! (140 amp or whatever you have!) I need one so I can do the alternator else I am going to have to pull mine out... but yeah, any help is appreciated!

    You know looking across that awesome head to that bright thing with all the green tubes and the blues lights (still don't know what it is) I'm thinking to myself...do you own anything that's stock?

    EDIT: oh yeah forgot to ask. Would you by any chance offer up your powdercoating expertise and services?

    I do prefer the black to the bling.

    However, after doing the work to prep and paint my block, clean my head and polish and clearcoat some of the accessories (alt, oil filter housing ect.), I realized that its difficult to see anything but the accessories when the engine is re-assembled. Unless you look at just the right angle, you wouldn't know the block was painted. I know your intake and exhaust are 'different' and those items do much of the hiding, so I hope we're able to see all your hard work when you're done.

    Either way, you know its there and thats what counts.
