Since I had nothing better to do, I started painting my throttle body black a few days ago ... using touch-up paint that comes in the little tubes, I started with glossy black (first pic) and then didn't like how much it was sticking out, so I switched to flat black and finished it off with it :)


The pics kinda make it look like it has a hint of blue in it, but it's definitely flat black, and blends in with the intake tube and manifold, which is what I wanted it to do ;)


And now for the pics :) :

Hehe ... you noticed that, huh ? :naughty: ..... :lol:

Since I'm no longer using the BT intake with its red filter, the red breather filter no longer matched anything and had to go :)

Nice. You forgot to paint your rotator splint and flux capacitor though.

Since your no longer using the BT intake, are you going to sell it? If so, how much?

Love the look... I had mine polished out.

Question though... why not use the engine bay cover? Alot of wires for my taste going crazy under there.

Haven't decided yet .... :)

The engine cover won't fit anymore because of the way the hoses are run for the catch can, but I have some ideas about that ... :)
