Wink Only a few things left

Installed a DC Sports strut bar earlier today and only have a couple more BT items left that still need to be shipped out along with deciding what color to powdercoat the bar along with the billet strut covers and then that will leave only one last thing left to finally complete my engine bay!

Here are a couple crappy cell phone pics that I took earlier:





While I wait for the last couple of BT items to arrive, I need to decide if I should powdercoat the bar and billet covers in gloss black or some shade of blue and also which color for which item?

Also forgot to ask, but if anyone with an SRT8 with the same DC Sports strut bar that has billet or BT strut covers installed, please let me know how you were able to get the smaller covers to stay on since they don't completely tighten down anymore due to the thickness of the bar.

Lookin good Oscar.

As far as paint color, do you plan to do anything to the intake manifold?

Answer that and I'll give you my two pennies.

Thanks man!

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I do plan on getting the intake manifold powder coated in either gloss black or some shade of blue. More than likely leaning towards gloss black but I was considered the polished route not too long ago too lol

Post one of those better pictures of your bay... I know it won't have the strut bar, but just want to see again...


And trust me, I know what you're going through. I bet you change your mind at least 14 times after being "positive this time".

These are what I consider the best engine bay shots that I have at the moment:








Oh man you have no idea how difficult it is deciding on the intake manifold since I plan on getting it ported as well but I almost scored on a polished intake manifold on ebay last week that still needed some more work but seemed as if most of the polishing work was done but was outbid in the last minute

Ok... here's my two pennies...

Blue manifold. Blue strut covers. Black strut bar.

A good blue paint job on the manifold will make it pop and bring out the little blue details. As far as the strut bar - I think the end caps should be blue to carry on the look of the hoses. Which also brings another option maybe - any way to polish the bar? So that the bar mimics the look of the hoses... a thought. But I think a black bar above a blue manifold would look sweet.

And that's what I gotta say about that. You asked for the opinion.

Agreed! I think that would look best in this set up! That manifold in the perfect blue will shine and pull the entire theme together nicely. Such a beauty. Just so you know THESE pics are what inspired me to get some under the hood bling in my very near future.

Oh man I can picture how it would look but I'm town between choosing gloss black manifold or blue. As for the bar, didn't even think about that not too sure if it's possible.

Thanks man and didn't even think of getting it smoothed first but that would actually look better rather than to just powder coat as is and have the surface all bumpy and rough.
