Thanks all.....cant stop looking at it all layed out in my house

Rolls: One of the reasons why ive had most of this stuff chromed (apart from th obvious ) is that polished alloy and sometimes stainless goes dull over time with heat etc, with chrome you just wipe it you dont have to polish it up all the time.

That all brings back memories, all that chrome layed out, reminds me of when I did my Cobra, have a look at
http://cobra.enjoy-design.net/images/underbonnet.jpg

Can't see that turbo snail staying as intended through, the heat will change its colour very quick. Just my humble opinion.

Will look great through, watch the bolt heads when you do them up on the chrome bolts, they flake if a badly fitted spanner is used.
