Chirstmas Goodies!

Cash from the in-laws allowed me to finish off the interior. I contacted Lupe @ River City Creations & Lighting (again) to provide me a couple IOM painted console pieces. Earlier, I got the IOM gauge cluster and steering wheel bezel from Lupe. He does an excellent job! I'm happy with how it turned out so Interior is now complete.....I think.

Thanks, appreciate the compliment. I'm planning to be back at the Fest this year. If you make it back, stop by and say hello. My wife is from Frederick, MD which I believe is pretty close to you.

Elite Catch Can Installed

Installed my Elite Catch Can with stainless lines on Friday since we finally got temps above 50. Here's a pic of the install.

Additions to Inferno:

Pete (the Mr. Showstopper) installed his new Heat Extractor Hood and did some fine paint work. The higher cowl on this hood is perfect, not too tall, but definately noticably higher than stock. One of my favorite touches is the Chevrolet Bowtie painted underneath the hood.

I also had Pete do some additional paint work on a few of my engine pieces. The list included painting the center portion of the engine cover CFM, painting the radiator cover CFM, painting the front latch cover SW, painting the CAI box CFM and IOM, new battery post cover IOM/SW, install rivets in the engine cover, black out the "Chevrolet" on the engine cover, and install stainless steel mounting bolts around the outside.

Lastly, Pete suggested these awesome billet hood hinges. I hesitated at first mostly due to cost, but pulled the trigger and glad I did. These things are beautiful and add so much to the custom look of the overall Engine Bay and Hood.

A big thanks to Pete and his crew there at the shop for their fantastic work!

Damn.... Under the hood is looking great!!!
My engine cover is similar to yours. The silver studs on the cover, What did you use or is that just painted? They looked raised.

I'll have to check to be exact, but they are either rivets or button head screws. They are the same as used on the custom covers that Pete (Showstopper) produces. The fact that they match makes it look even better. The original higher resolution picture shows this better.
