Such a clean tuck philly. And love the colour combo George - and that header's going to really dress it up!

ha! I was just in the garage looking at mine tonight and thinking I need to get rid of that. Never used once. Not sure quite how to do it though (in regards to the vacuum lines).

Took about 15 minutes once I knew what I was doing.

You should paint your coolant overflow or replace it with something smaller and hidden! Would clear up that side a lot.

For reference and to stay on topic:

You should stitch weld the bay and fenders while your at it.

Can't remember if I ever posted a picture of my slightly less cluttered engine. This isn't a recent picture mind you. I finally have my purple Samco hoses on now and I painted my dipstick purple as well.

The entire chassis is stripped. You best believe I did it up.

This is actually a go-fast build--shaving the bay was kind of an afterthought. I just let myself get carried away since I already had to do a bunch of cutting and welding in the engine bay to clear the drivetrain that's going in.

A tucked and shaved bay is a luxury I'd love to work in to a build.

First time I've ever seen an engine-theme based on the dipstick (or was it the OEM stickers?)
