Lets see your engine bay!

so im thinking about doing some paint work under the hood this weekend, but i dont know exactly what I want to do...

I have a black SS/SC and im thinking about painting the accents (injector cover, rail cover, things like that) gun metal, and doing everything else in polish or brushed aluminum...i just want to see some pictures to get an idea of what i want to do...

and any under hood painting tips you guys have would be great

I think TTR was running a sale when I bought it, like $160 or so. I think they are $180 normally.

I need to get a newer picture tho. it has since been stripped of the coating and polished/cleared. looks a LOT better

Check out the Vendor sale section we have them on sale right now

We can also do a mount in gun metal

UPDATE:

"Gun Metal" is now a standard color option for the TTR mounts (Updated the online site)

well....i get paid on friday!


and i know this isnt exactly the tech section, but would i just put a jack under the motor while the stock mount is off? or will it be supported by the tranny mounts enough to not have to do that?
