I finally decided on the paint color for the final product. To start I repainted the engine parts. I am sticking with the silver base/clear that is on the suspension, frame spreaders, brakes, block and heads. I have painted the valve covers, oil pan, waterpump, and intake in a Viper Red. The final paint scheme will be Viper red and Silver with the split at the belt line. No commitment yet on whether the top will be red or silver.
