      Looks much nicer. Now remove those radiator upper supports and paint those up.

      btw: Your outlet pipe and Thermostat housing are on their way out soon. Take notice of the browning on the exterior. Means they are worse off on the insides. You can bolt on a cheaper direct fit all aluminum JAG housing instead.

      If you're not going the CAI route possibly think of an air box mod.

      I'm expecting to start hearing from the AARP anytime now... but they start hounding early. :(

      Everything looks orange in the pics, it is in fact a very bright red.

      What kind of paint did you use? I assume the primer was an "etching" type for plastics.

      When Im done this will be the blackest car you've ever seen, hence the name "stealthlinc" aside from under the hood, also red calipers, and red Lincoln badges front and rear.

      IMO red just goes better with the all black stealthy look, than blue or silver would

      I get where you are going with the build. Hard to find... but add a red Lincoln emblem for the grill,,, to your list.

      That's right, the Batmobile,
      a 1955 Lincoln Futura was also black with red.

        Agreed, warm to touch is all.

          Nope... you're good. Overkill is better than insufficient when it comes to doing things right. Just please, please tell me you aren't going to do an LS "batmobile" :confused::eek:

            I like the car in your recent pic. Suicide doors are awsome!!! I could live without the rims and tires though.
