I think once you get it put together it will look a little less tacky and more unique paint scheme.

That looks really cool to me. Is it powder coat? If not I don't know how well it will look after a couple of heat cycles.

It would look even cooler with some colored metal flake. I've always wanted to powdercoat engine parts in the stuff they use on bass boats.

it's paint. the same kind of paint has held up great on my NA for 2 years before it started chipping like crazy.

Sorry about the white fogness, it's the humidity getting to my cold lens

hm, looking at it now, I might redo the hotpipe bracket in black with green now.

I like the black parts with green spatter. Looks 'Matrix-y'.
