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.
We used Allen head stainless bolts. We also continued to use them for the fender bolts as well so everything flows nicely.

Inferno gets a wheel update!

Added some Chevy ZL1 5 spoke rims (NOT REPLICAS). I had the non-polished areas of the rim powdercoated black. I also had Lupe at River City Creations and Lighting make me some custom center caps to match the bowties he had previously done for me. Gorilla wheel locks to hopefully protect my investment and I'm good to go. I think this wheel combination with the custom painted striping works well. I'm very happy with the result.

Rims look great. Will be nice to see this is the next couple weeks. Couple questions though. Did they have to custom make that radiator cover because I thought I only seen the V6 option on their site. And its kinda hard to tell in the pic, but does the under hood dress up pieces match the CAI pretty close?

The radiator shroud was one of the first things I did, but if my memory is correct and I'm pretty sure I'm remembering this right, the Roto-Fab Shroud fits the CAI V8 Intake. You can email Pete @ showstopperaccessories.com to verify.

With the button head screws, yes, I would say they match the CAI box very well. I think that answers your question. I sent you an email with higher resolution picture that shows this.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

who did the powdercoating on your new wheels? That's similar to what I was thinking of doing to mine.

thanks

Had them done at Like New Parts in Pekin, Illinois. Harley is the guy to talk to. His phone number is 309-696-6445 and website: http://likenewparts.com/

Great guy and does great work. I highly recommend him. SSMKNU2 has used Harley for work as well.
