Great job on the whole engine compartment. Silver makes the engine 'pop.' Your girlfriend has a great eye for it.

Man, I'm impressed; not wasting any time at all. Seems like all I'm doing is day dreaming over here.

Nah, just more time and finish some other things. I was first impressed that you did the front end/brake kit in like 2 hours. Your certainly lighting a fire under some stuff that's coming up in my wag, so thanks!

As do all photographers :D

Hey Mike - did you pull the engine out, prep, paint, drop it back in, and finish the front susp./disc setup all in one day? Good job bro.

For me, it would be more like --- pull the engine out, drink, prep, drink, drink, paint, drink... run out of time... finish tomorrow. :sleep:

Hey Bro, did you use a different silver on the valve cover? looks duller than the block silver. I'm trying to find dull silver engine paint for my intake, but everything seems too shiny.
