The engine cover is still in the design phase, but I should get some drawings done by this weekend and I'll get them posted up. I'm also thinking about getting a strut bar with the Stark Industries logo on it.

UPDATE 04JUN12:

Arc Reactor is completed! Just received these photos from AAC.





UPDATE 16JUN12:

Engine cover is installed and wired up. Here are a few pictures. Think I'm going to keep it the color it is currently, but I will be adding some Stark Industries logos to the cover.



I am glad now that I went with the Revolution hood, you can see the reactor and the wiring through the cowl.







Here are some videos. Please excuse the quality, I took them with my phone.



God dam that is awesome!

It has a mode where it's constantly on, that's just the setting I have it on for now.

need taillights that can shit to a blue/white afterburner like Ironamn's boots do. The burners on his hands are already sort of like the headlights. But I guess when he is going forward, he has his hands to the back so he has 4 burners, and the camaro has 4 taillights, so it works out

That would be cool, but not really the theme I'm going for. I want it to appear like it was built by Stark Industries, not actually resemble Ironman.

Thanks?
I haven't decided on whether I'm going to paint it or not. I have some Stark Industries logos being made for the engine cover (where Chevrolet used to be) but I was thinking about painting that part gold to match the stripes and throw some RJT in there somewhere. I also kind of like the flat black and silver look.

I'm going to add LED's to light the rest of the engine bay. Trying to decide if I should use a blue/white combo to match the engine cover, or use red. I think the contrast of red and the reactor would look good. Plus, I don't want it to be so bright that no one wants to look under the hood, lol. I think a soft red would look good. Thoughts?

Definitely a soft red would be ideal. Something just to show off everything else under the hood, not so much that it makes everything else stand out so your engine cover is the main focus.

I love the fact that you can see the reactor through the hood while it is closed. The idea is so unique and bad ass. Love it!!!!
