Now this'll be cool lookin'. Will be following along on this one Nick. If can make a suggestion. I usually black base my transmissions and go over them with a thin coat of steel. I may be all wet with the color usage but the result is a fairly realistic metal shade IMO. That color on the motor looks fantastic. Yes
