I totally agree with you based on the pictures. However, in person it is not as pronounced, although that's the last of the red going in there. I have Spectre steel braided hoses and blue Magna-Clamps coming in the mail and along with the rest of the black hoses, black/red Plenum cover, black TBS, black CAI, and black hood struts, it mixes very well and the covers jump out at you when looking at the bay in person. I think any theme in these bays look awesome and sure beats the hell out of stock....new stang owner said:I was thinking of doing this as well, but now have second thoughts. IMO, in scramblers pics, you kind of lose the effect or sight of them because they blend in with the color of his car. Again, this is my opinion. I think I may have to go chrome or silver.
Thanks Man, appreciate the words...mrvandermey said:My brother, those covers are the bomb!!! They look absolutely terrific. I decided I was going to the same thing when I saw an advertisement for a plenum cover, where a customer had a black one (like yours) and painted the ribs and GT in red (like yours), he also had the red power coated covers...damn they look good. Thank you for posting that followup thread, I am giving the guy a call right away.:laughlitt
Thanks Sonny. Actually the oil fill is in the same place, I just took off the neck. I don't like the chimney look coming off the covers. :winkssonny1213 said:Nice job there. I kept looking at the 1st pic and finally figured out what was different. The oil fill has been relocated from last year.
Not sure about the torque spec, but each bolt has a rubber gromet attached to it. Also, the bolts bottom out. I just alternated from top to bottom and side to side and tightened them until it just started squeezing the gromet. As long as it's tight, these gaskets shouldn't leak based on the way they are designed. Not like the old ones which were flat.sonny1213 said:Do the bolts need to be torqued to spec. when the covers are put back on? What woud that be? I tend to snap bolt heads off! :kooky:
