    Arrow ts|s engine...round 2

    Ok what do you think? Shown here is a photoshop of what I want to do with my engine. It's taken me almost a month to decide on these items:

    battery cover: metallic purple with mirrored plexi bird/trans am
    fuse box cover: metallic purple with LS1 flag emblem and engine plaque with my name/car name/HP&TQ numbers/ws.6 and red color fills
    PCM cover: metallic purple with mirrored ws.6 badge-no color fill
    346CI/LS1 badge: black and red with mirrored lettering and "slash"
    Under Hood Mirror kit


    Ok, more options since appearantly purple is too queer for muscle cars

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    other things i want to do are hide the wires along the fenders and polish up anything i can, maybe anodized fuel rails and other gizmos. I can't be the "appearance sponsor" and have a shitty engine bay

    Hmmm...maybe a few shades darker on the grey.
    Make it blend in...but not too much. If that makes any sense.
