Did you say you are going to paint the coolant bottle?

Yeah, you want to be able to glance at the coolant tank and see the level. If you have to do something, maybe a nice gloss coat??? Just make her nice and shiney.

Leave a unpainted stripe down the side of the coolant tank so you can see what the level is. Sort of like the side of a quart of oil.

I am so way ahead of you guys. The whole non painted line was the first thing I thought of. Cause unlike my buddy who made a coolant bottle then Powder Coated it. He forgot to fabricate a fluid level window.

Stitch, your engine cover looks great, the only downside is it makes your engine look dirty.

I'm curious to see how your coolant tank comes out.

Well I finally did it. The heat shield you've seen but now it has a clear coat on it. The coolant bottle and Air Box now match.
