yes...this is a complete :Princess: question...so much it didn't deserve to be in tech. :D

My current 350 is purple...:( :rolleyes: and well, getting ready to tear into the TBI swap, do the valve seals, and i think my rear main is leaking :mad: I figure it's stupid easy to pull the engine...might as well so I can fix it all easily and paint without leaning over a SOA 40 on 37's.

So what color?

Black - doesn't show the oil leaks as much...

Grey, it shows the leaks so you can't fool yourself about them! :D

Cruiser folks hate chrome... I know it doesn't belong on a wheeler, but man, any hopped up engine should at least have some brushed aluminum or something!? ;)

I voted for grey...That said, did you see what LX_TREME over on MUD did to his 1FZ? That is the shizzz :) - black chrome powder coated with super high gloss clear coat

Here are some links - Maybe it is just me but I thing that looks way cool without being too "blingy" :thumb:
