I think it looks awesome. Amazing attention to detail. The only thing "I" would do is get rid of the brass. To me, it draws the eye to random parts of the engine compartment that don't seem to complement or blend with the rest of your work. However, that is being extremly picky and just personal preference.

[QUOTE I'm not sure I'm crazy about it.
What you guys think?

Bit too 'pretty' for me....

I'd give it a coat of GM chassis black and call it good!.... But that's me..

my junk will never be this detailed, as it's not my cup of tea.
and that comes from see'n cars that were used all summer get a paint job from a master craftsman either my dad or others with an eye on flawless, only to see the car become garage art..
and come out for 1 or 2 shows and then a few years later sold as the owner got bored with it..
if we all built the same thing, and the same way it get mighty boring real fast.. I like looking at cars with crazy detail, but I'll never build one.. I'm a miles of smiles gearhead, you dig
