I love the idea, and look forward to seeing it. I've been thinking about doing this for my truck.

I've read a thread on doing this elsewhere, I just can't remember which forum I was on.

Ugh...... frustrating. I've had to have powder coating redone before, too.

Looks nice. Is there a reason they do it in blue? Or, did your change your mind?

Looks like they did a quality job on it. I like it! Should be real easy to keep clean.

Looks Good.
Does the intake have an exhaust port crossover?
I wonder how the power coat will hold up to the heat.
