Mike, moving the catch can to the stock intake location was brilliant!!! I am doing this for sure when I get my can! I also absolutely LOVE those engine covers. You've definitely got the total package going on there.

I've seen other guys put the catch can there so I can't take all the credit!

FINALLY!!! I finally got around to installing my long awaited Hines Hex Vents! I must say these vents are of excellent quality and look great! It wasn't the easiest mod for me though, I had a hard time with the cutouts but managed after a trip to Valu to get the right saw blade for my jig saw. Then I didn't have the proper side cut tin snips so I butchered the under side trims. Luckily it's all covered up once you install the liner! I painted the splash pans and screws with matte black engine enamel.

The long delay was in part my own fault because of lack of work space I had to wait till I could pull the car out into the driveway to make room to work on the hood on the saw horses. Then the (insert expletives here) took over 4 weeks to finish painting the grill pieces to match the RJT. I picked them up last week and he didn't clear coat the bottoms and he finished 1 of them on the wrong side anyway. Then he messed up the clear on one, then he still had the wrong side done! It took him 4 tries to get it right! I could have, and should have done them myself but it was cold and I was lazy!

Anyway, after all that I think they came out perfect! Here's some pics (I'll post better full car shots once the weather gets better again).

Those look awesome mike,I like the painted mesh. You did a hell of a nice job. Your like me I get very impatient and can't wait for something to get done. Be size I am like you I like saving the money,but I would rather do the work myself MORE satifying. Was thinking of doing this but would have too get rid of my hood mirror.

I like doing as much of the work myself both for cost saving and like you say for the satisfaction! I learned a reminder lesson on these vents though! I could have painted them myself but I got lazy and decided to have the done "professionally". Haha, I had to bring them back 3 times because the kept doing the wrong side on one of them and the clearcoat sucked! I could have done a better job myself!

Thanks! I installed the fender "hash" marks at the end of fall.
