Just thought I'd post a thread even though it's late. I'm heading back down to Jon's to swap out valve covers and intake manifold for some new shiny powdercoated ones:) I'll be sure to post pics. The weather is "Supposed" to be nice , so we'll see how it goes.

What colour(s) are you going with?
 






Can I watch??
 






I'm goin with Gold Valve Covers and Intake. It's going to look pretty sharp.
 












Got the parts coated. pics in a bit.

We had to work around work schedules to make this happen Daniel.

If anyone wants to come help that would be great, or if you just want to hang out. We have to cut it early though, as my Son is back for pre-deployment leave and I will want to kick you all to the curb so I can hang out with him. :D

Boy, that sounded rude didn't it?
 






I had to mix the "gold" with 2 powders. I used a 2 gold to 3 silver sparkle ratio.

I hope I hit it Thomas

Purdy. :)
 






:eek: WOW. Jon, that is FREAKIN BEAUTIFUL. Honestly I can't thank you enough for the Good things you've helped do for my Late mother's truck. You really couldn't have gotten much closer to be honest. VERY VERY nice!!:thumbsup:
 












Seeing that is really getting me excited as when I come down for the TM's I'm having some magic performed on my intake and these:

Are you done yet? :D
 


















Well I'm home, well sorta(at my GF's). I'm gonna clean up then I'll upload the few pics I was able to snap during the day today. It was great as always. We always have a good time and have fun conversations. The swap was a success and then some. We found some bugs that went un noticed after my header install 2 years ago that were nailed today. And because of it the Truck actually picked up a lil bit of power back and now runs cooler. Jon when we got back in town I popped the hood and even after all that driving I was still able to rest my hand on the intake. I'm now actually taking full advantage of the intake spacer. Thanks a ton again :D
 






The weather was beautiful. Best day yet this year.

I'm glad we got the little issues solved, and I 'll sleep a little better now that that crack is fixed. It's been bothering me for 2 years now--
Man , can you believe it was that long ago?


We need pictures. I guess my camera never got used.
 






Pictures or it didn't happen :D
 






What no pictures?? Now hows everyone going to no I was there and in the way! :D

These are the best I could get with my cell phone. I was too busy helping Jon on the truck plus the angle had the engine bay in the shade.
