Looks really good, Dennis. I like it much better than the stainless you had on there. And the hood liner is really . Who did the painting on that?

Here's how the cover comes from West Coast Corvettes.



Your creative paint work is what transforms the LS1 cover from a yawn to a WOW!
Well done!!

Easily one of the best engine bays I've seen. As much as I liked your original looks, it was a bit on the busy side with the flame reflection from your hood liner. The new covers really clean up the lines.

I would love to see a picture of your new bay at this angle:

Nice work, I like the look! You may like what Bairs has in red hood adjuster bolts & cowl & battery weatherstripping. www.bairs.com...p.s. I got a nice red plastic battery cover from Mid-America...

How are those inner fender covers held on? Just double sided tape I assume?

Looks great! I like the new look. I like chrome, however only is small amounts, like caps and support struts that help finish the look vs. overwhelm it.
