Looking for as.....opinions

So I have some new parts to install here soon, but I'm undecided on what to do with the supercharger. I'm thinking about going black with the supercharger, silver pulleys, and sand the svt/ford on the front to make them silver as well.

This is the only picture I have of the engine bay at the moment, but the car is sonic blue, valve covers are ford blue, everything else is black as normal. (battery will be black here soon).

Re: Looking for as.....opinions

I really like the black look on my car....and on many others that I've seen. I've even been asked if it is whippled because it is black.

Mine is painted with high temp BBQ black paint from Sherwin Williams...it's been 2 years now and it has help up great.

Re: Looking for as.....opinions

black would look fine but those bright blue valve covers kind of contrast with the car's blue color~ its not bad or anything just not my cup of tea if you will.

You need a better looking CAI, or if you plan on it think of how that will play out~ color wise etc.

Also take that K&N sticker off lol it doesnt mesh. I wish there was something we could do to clean up all those nasty wires back by the firewall... while the blower is off you could move the wires and crap from the side of the blower back in the firewall by just extending a few wires as others have done, makes for a much cleaner look.

If you do paint the blower it needs to be smoothed out to look right IMO or you must go with a flat NO gloss at all color.

I like that idea of flat black and sand the SVT and Ford emblems to silver.

Do a silver JLT intake with black couplings, maybe think about repainting the valve covers?

Paint the SVT on the supercharger Sonic Blue. it'll match and look sexy as tits.



Like that.

I don't know...I like the idea of going color matched with it, as I wanted to try that myself, but I don't think the blue on silver stands out enough. I wanted to accent the letters redfire on the black, but it looked like a crap load of work to make it look good and keep all the lines clean.

Lol...well it's currently black. Giving it a few hours to dry and for me to be un-high. Then I'll pull all the tape off, sand the Ford and SVT on the front and get some pics up.

No, you've taken kitchen floor customs to a new level. Here at back yard automotive we would never paint something on the kitchen floor....we use patio tables instead.

If you'd like to come pull them off I'd be more than happy to. I kinda like the other blue anyway.
