Looks good but "running naked" is better

Ya I taped it, I'm a painter by trade. The Air Box and the ugly clear coolant overflow container is next but not until I get the dreaded Dex cool out of my system. As you can tell by the pic The mud has started but nothing under the rad cap yet.

Hey that'* a good idea! The only problem is that mine doesn't have painted lettering. Maybe I can paint the letters and let it dry good; then paint the rest of it and whipe down the letters with some paint thinner before it dries?
