I was simply gonna install my engine in stock form and look stock. BUT I have a friend that had a brand new Z06 cam in package and a few other parts. Well I now own these pieces. I hope to make it a stout lil 6.0. Also drastically changed color as well. Was black but now a nice bright orange. A lil old school look. Whatcha ya think?

Didn't know if you were gonna have work done to them and possibly bead blast or paint them. Just curious, seen some I think on here that got painted. Either way I like it.

Well they are not bolted on. I still have to get new springs and get the put on. Me personally I love the look of the bare aluminum, just want it brighter.

I used a brass brush too. Maybe I look into some aluminum wheel cleaner this weekend.
