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.

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.
