Default Very nice

I love the purple and white and the matching baffles and covers. Wow, I guess I am going to have to step up when it comes time to paint; you set the bar high.

Thanks, just don't look too close, there are lots of flaws in my paint. I bought a used engine and it is the ugly grey lyc color, trying to cover it up, using up the rest of my 600.00 a gallon paint......color ;-)
