" Strut bar is done:
What are you looking at? It was a Racing Dynamics aluminum strut bar. Then we added mounting plates for the nitrous solenoids, meth valve, and FPR. Then this week I sections of 1/2" wide aluminum bar welded to the back, drilled a 1/4" hole through them, then cut them down. These will be the zip-tie points for slew of wiring and lines going between the left and right sides of the engine bay. Because of where they are placed, a person standing at the front of the engine bay won't easily see any of it.
The final step was to prep all the aluminum surfaces for paint, prime 2 layers with self etching primer, then add 3 layers of low-gloss black paint. The finished result to me looks like OEM...hopefully it stays that way through assembly. "
