Chewy -

You can jack it anytime, you're doing us a favor.
Thank you for all you do.

Stay safe and think about that ride when you get back.

First pic. I like the contrast.

I have black ceramic coated headers. I like the contrast and the black just looks evil.

Here are the first two renderings Dragon did. See what you think. I will try to get one post with all four side by side for comparison purposes.
The first pic has the headers coated in Ceramic Black.

I don't think Speedster ever grew up. Maybe that's the trick?

Ha, no you don't - I have scars... Plus you set your goal high with that whole growing up thing.

Ha, that is closer than you think. Short of running up and down the hallways naked, the office is like a college dorm...

OK, here is a quick hack job of putting the 4 beautiful pics done by Dragoneye and making them fit all together. (Sorry J-)

See which one you like or combinations that we did not try yet.

...and Thanks for your thoughts !!

I like #3. The chrome seems more impressive when there's less of it. Makes it pop more. It kinda becomes a premium then. And that is good.

Plus, seems to keep everything only 2 levels of color. Really shiny, or black.

#2 with the logo as done in #3 and 4.
Here's why. I like being able to see the lettering on the logo (like in 3 and 4).
I also like the black contrast against the pulleys in 2.

That contrasting of chrome against gloss black is very striking.

Bruce - I like #2 but think the Nelson logo should be chromed to give a little pop. I am one who loves the Black sinister look, but think the pulleys should be polished as in the renderings they really stick out but when in the car they will be alot more subtle. You cant go wrong with any of them as they are all incredible and perfect eye candy. By the way, "Growing up is over-rated!" Hurry up and get the SST done already!!!

It has coil packs, but not the factory type. They will be mounted back on the firewall. These are the kind that if you get your fingers within an inch of they would fry them right off... They have "Danger High Voltage" on each coil for a reason. Trust me, I know.

The coils on the SST are the exact same as the Firebird. There are 4 coils. Here is a FB pic for reference.

P.S. In case anyone is wondering, the headers on the Firebird have the Jet Hot Sterling Extreme Ceramic coating that would go on the parts of the SST that we want to be thermally protected and "bright"

I guess the good part of this task is that it means we are getting really close to putting it in

OK cool, I wasn't sure if they were gonna be on the valve covers or remote..

With that in mind, I like #1 with the Nelson logo from 3 or 4...

I'm a sucker for polished valve covers....
