I like the 2-tone effect you've got now! Nice!

Yup, I don't smoke, no one smokes in my car, or they simply don't ride in it.

Ok, Fuel rail and throttle bracket are both dry. They came out VERY nice, and I cannot wait to put them on.

You used the same paint on the fuel rails and TB bracket? Hmmm, I suppose they may hold up to the heat...

Anyways, I had that same idea last year with the 94. I was going to use the same dark gray metallic paint on my dash as well, but to really make it look like it belonged I would have had to do the trim piece above the gauge cluster, the vents, the center console, etc...it was too much work! So I didn't do it.

I like it better than the woodgrain!

I have to say, I actually like the woodgrain., but what you did came out very well.

Dash looks much better. Not a big fan of the way you painted your FPR into the rail though.

I used that same paint when I modded a computer case a while back. I really like the looks of it in the light.

I taped off carefully where the snap ring is that holds down the FPR. Only the piece that bulges out where the vacuum fitting is got painted. I tried to be as careful as possible.
