You got your new coil pack covers on, never noticed the chrome/polished fuel rails, you have chromed the heat shields and you painted/powder coated your headers/manifolds....other than that i think everything else is the same level of modification you have shown before...the chrome fusebox is cool, is that a decal????Also the dog bone is nice, never looked at it that close before....i like the chrome painted dip stick too...

Went to east wood they have a header paint that can stand up to 1500 deg
I have taken the car out 3 times went up to temp for about 30min each time
still looks like I just did it. The dip stick I purchased at Corvette chrome parts
The fuse box is a thin piece of aluminium I picked up at home depot and I
Put it upside down on the cover traced the out line and cut it with my razor
knife and then polished. And that is a decal

I am not saying to do this... But wondering what a customized engine cover, with areas cut out or removed would look like...

Put your cutouts in places to show off what is under them but still leave the logo, frame and mounting points intact.



And yes this is way overboard... I don't like it, but sadly this is the only photo I could find that even touched on the subject.

Another option for header paint is graphite dry spray lube. The powdered graphite doesnt burn away. And looks pretty good even on old manifolds.
