i wouldve taken a pic of the SF fuel rail, but i was messin around with the fuel pressure sender and broke the teflon seal, so its kinda messy under there at the moment. i think i got the leak under control, but ill find out tomorrow on my way to work! the fuel leak really pissed me off... but since its in, i can live with it...

what paint did you use to paint your entire dash?

for the Intake manifold, i used duplicolor paint from walmart, couple coats of primer, couple coats of paint, couple coats of clear coat. when i was taking my fuel rail out, some gas splashed onto the manifold. there were a few spots of paint that came off, so i just did a quick 'in engine' sprays, came out ok.

for the dash, i used duplicolor flat black and SEM silver metallic. no primer, no clear coat.

strut is carbing, got it for about $220 shipped.

Carbon Fiber plastics are IPT.

any other questions i missed... shoot me a pm and ill try to answer. thanks for the compliments! thumbsup
