It looks a lot better, bc it looked like the RTV got a little happy and went a little on my IM

Haha yea some got on my IM too...when I originally installed the ice-olator I didn't have to worry to much since my IM wasn't ported so the iceolator didn't match up so it wasn't too bad to clean it. Since now that my IM is ported it was harder to try and clean. Not gonna lie I'll have to let the RTV dry more and clean it up better ugh lol.

Ok, I would love people's opinions on this please.

Background: My pedals use to be Red Billet Aluminum Pedals and then had them powder coated orange. Started to think they could use something so I thought that maybe about painting the holes black. So tonight I got bored and took a sharpie and started to color in some of the holes on the pedals and would like a couple of opinions on how it looks.

I'll start with the bad news first. Apparently the bolts I ordered were too long and did not fit for my throttle body. So instead I just used the stock ones and painted them black, still looks pretty good I think.



Now with the IOM spray paint I decided to paint my plenum cover and I think it came out great! That finishes up my winter project on my intake manifold and I can't be happier . It looks fantastic!



Can't wait to install it
