I owe Bob @ Brutespeed a shout out for the good price on the ATI balancer and the ATI shroud. I was looking for an alternative to the BMR polished shroud and saw the black ATI one on this site. Since everything else is black it'll match great!

They seem to appear and are gone until they get one back in stock. For whatever reason they stock smaller IC's (probably for the import world) and don't carry many of the larger sizes.

Thanks! The problem now is I feel compelled to paint the engine bay so it looks pretty haha.


Bob, any idea why those slits are in the ATI shroud? My guess was that the metal manufacturer couldn't get the bend without some relief cuts?

Please don't rattle can your engine bay! I'm so tired of seeing all these beautiful builds with thousands of dollars spent just to turn around and do some bullshit spray paint. Find a local ppg paint supplier and get a pint mixed up it shouldnt cost more than $40. If you don't have any guns go to harbor freight and get their mini touch up gun.

My last car was properly done using the factory duplicolor paint match and clear coat rattle cans and it came out fantastic. If its done right it looks great, most people just dont do it right.

bla....no dice. I think I'm going to try and get the same duplicolor that I did on the TA. Should come out nice and the color will match. I just need to decide if I want to redo the black front support Pewter again or leave it black.

Haha, I don't claim to be the expert, maybe the silver just blended really well. I did spend and hour taping and masking everything off at sharp angles so you couldn't tell what was old and what was new. I imagine the Pewter color may be a tougher match than the Seabring Silver, but we'll see.
