I found a few old threads, but nothing specific to completed dressed up/show car engine bay mods and wanted to give a place for you show car guys a place to show off you work. Mine is in the beginning stages and I was hoping to get some ideas.

Here is mine from a few months ago. I'll have to take a new pic and post later.

todd,
was the steeda brace painted that way from them or was it black? i was looking to get the k member and the IRS subframe brackets for underneath the car and powdercoating them before install...didnt know if that would affect how the product performed.

Just started in on mine. Coolant tank cover should be here in a day to rid myself of that awful eyesore. Looking at powder coating the strut bar back with yellow inset beneath the GT plaque.

Steeda sent me an unfinished STB which was ready for powdercoating. I sent it to my local powdercoater and they did my custom red for $25:D

If you send them off to get powdercoated, it won't impact their performance at all.

[MENTION=10567]SINBUSTER007[/MENTION]I got a bare STB from Steeda and sent it off to my local powdercoater for them to match the red on my coil covers.

The powdercoating they used on my can take temps up to 400 degrees so that is more than enough for under hood temps. No impacts on the product and how it performs either.
