    I kinda like it. It looks more clean. I added the mobil one plate. I'm still deciding on what emblems to get. I might work some more on the A/C dryer to polish it and get rid of the scratches on top. I want to put a red firebird eagle sticker on top of the A/C dryer and maybe a red 98 on the small intake plate. You guys think I should put a "LS1/5.7" label on the airlid? or should I leave it clean? I wanted to put something on the fuse covers as well. I don't want to overkill it.

    I wish the chrome cap covers were not so expensive. I think all the caps chrome will be nice. I also looking to change the wiper fluid reservoir to a black one. Is kinda of hard to paint it. What you guys think?
    one thing i did that helped clean things up was painting bolt heads to match whatever surface they're on. I did that for my intake and coil packs-all those gray/silver bolts i painted black and it made them blend in so nicely.

    wow that is VERY nice. I love the custom cylinder block plate and the braided lines. That's a nice touch with the bolts. What do you use to keep it clean and doesn't get it stained?

    Thank you. I use a pressure washer, foam cannon and Grime Reaper Degreaser + an arsenal of brushes when I detail engines. Blow dry with a vaccuum and then dress with CD2.
