Yeah when I do the bottom end it will be black, all hoses etc will be black, only other silver will be the expansion tank when I get around to fabbing one up. Should look alright I reckon

Small update, after mechanic has sat on his hands doing F**k all on the car for two weeks instead of fitting my damn worked head, I took it to the exhaust shop to have some of my goodies fitted. Then tomorrow ...back to waiting for the head to be fitted lol

New exhaust fitted up ...What a difference ...bring on the new head. Went for the 4480s, 100cpsi venom 400 series cat and full red back exhaust with full size mufflers. Nice note and not too loud until you want it to be. Also picked up a nice clean NC leather wheel and the NC (darker) climate control and trip computers. turns out the new (?) meguiars extreme dash and detailing stuff works wonders on the cruise buttons ...few applications have them looking alright again. Ordered the j3 today, picked up an EL XR6 ECU today along with some thermo fans and AU upper arms ...ordered the adaptors today too ...HOPEFULLY next week the head will be going on. Slowly getting there. Next will be the suspension and brakes ...then eventually a lick of paint all over.
