yeah i dunno either about all of that silver i would have done it a chrome/polished look and foxthor is right about all of the spray over, my susgestion is to try and clean that excess up.
But otherwise it looks heaps better than before.

More Shots

Few more shots for yaz, got the red on, it does look quite good in life. There is no red overspray, it does look like that in those photos a little, but its just red glow off teh radiator shroud. BTW< I BELIEVE GOON ASKED ME FOR THE HOT TIP? lol, well i took the shroud off, and applied very light coats of red gloss paint (just teh shitty $5 can) just hold the can at a distance so it gets a fine mist. do this several times to avoid runs. I did make it run a little at the front as you can see in the photo. BUT - this has now been fixed via this process.

cheers, thanks, pretty happy with the results. The only thing i didnt really touch are the extractors. They are rusty as **** to lol. I'll get em some other day with a bit of the heat resistant paint that can take exhaust heat, up to 1300degrees i think som1 said.
