the first N has a little overhang, but the last N is contoured to the curve of the valve cover. thanks

The colour itself is nice, but the added "NEON" and the red/blue not so much.

thanks, I added the neon for a little something different. the red/blue will most likely be changed, I am not a fan of red at all, but when I got the wires they sent the wrong ones, that was a long time ago, oh well.

The stardust clear makes it look dirty or messed up, but you get an "A" for effort.

You've really got to see it in the sunlight. Those speckles shine, camera pictures just don't do it justice, but thanks.

It really does look nice, but the "Neon" on it just looks kind of cheesy.

The nice VC makes the rest of the bay look especially crusty.

Yeah the bay needs a lot of work, but I am waiting till I do an engine swap to give it the complete love it needs and deserves.
