New Black Wrinkle Powder Coated Finish Pics..



Here is the second Black cover sample.
This is our low maintenance Black wrinkle finish.
I like the look.
Just Do IT!

That looks nice. I can appreciate anything anti-bling.

Michael:

It's 2.3 lbs lighter than stock covers
It's 100% Billet Aluminmum.
It's a bolt on upgrade, everything is included except the GM Gasket.
Gets rid of the Tupperware covers on the engine.
Does not retain heat, vented covers stay cooler.

And they look amazing! IMO.
Poliished or Black!

It is a night and day difference.

Dump the plastic covers that hold in the heat!

What percentage of a temperature drop is typical with theses?

Great looking. Geez, I'm gonna have a hard time deciding between the wrinkle black or the polished aluminum. Also looks great with the MSD coils - will need to do these too.

The vented ribs release the heat into the atmosphere rather than retaining it inside the motor. The less heat that is trapped under the hood the cooler the engine will run. Like when you remove the plasic tupperware covers.
This as well releases heat that is trapped. As well, Powder coated covers will help to trap / retain the heat inside the engine.

I do not have any hard stats that I can share with you, for now all I can say is that the engine will not retain as much heat as stock when using our covers.

The polished are in stock, but the painting starts this week.
We Paint per specific customer order, so order up!
Just do it!

Black or polished, they are both amazing!
You will not find better, anywhere. You will realize this as you receive the product via UPS. You will smile!

The product sells itself.

Not gonna create much of a heat difference (at least not even close to enough to matter in any capacity) I hate to tell you..... I've been a mechanic for 17 years, trust me..... I understand different materials absorb heat better than others, but it isn't going to make any difference in this set up. Just be real and let people know it's cosmetic and offers little to no performance advantages.....

Hi Scuba

I agree somewhat, and I am not claiming any measurable performance gain.
That would be silly. What I would say is that it would be an improvement over the stock setup, and would dissipate the heat quicker, not absorb the heat as you stated, absorb means retain the heat. The covers are lighter, which is a plus, but mainly, after they are installed, they will dramatically improve the appearance of your engine compartment without any real negatives that I can see. Only plus's. Thanks very much for your comments, I really enjoyed this comment.

So do your covers have actual "open" vents ?

And just so you know, to dissipate heat is to extract heat. Which different materials will do to some varying degree. Different components of any engine are designed specifically the way they are designed to extract heat or act as "heat sinks". That was my larger point. So unless your covers have "open" vents (which would be silly) then they don't dissipate heat they "absorb" it.

Not sure what your referring to, open vents for crankcase ventilation, yes.
There are the machined ribs @ .030" deep across the top of the cover.

Great point, but I would have to argue that with the machined grooved surface .030" deep as shown, would release the heat faster from the cover, just because it has more surface for the air to be in contact with. Interestingly enough, as the spider coil brackets are attached, their contact with the cover could act as a heatsink and help the situation further. It would be interesting if I could do some tests on this some day soon. Hey, this is really splitting hairs, and I don't have that much hair to spare. Quite seriously though, I have not gone into this much detail on the heat factor. It is Very interesting really. I guess we can agree to have our own opinions, Thanks again for your great comments.

Love them. I did the entire 454 on my 68's in wrinkle black. It gives allot more surface area to radiate heat off the surface. I noticed a big temp difference right away. plus chrome bolts really stands out. Again sweeet!
