Have fun with the project.

Form follows function, right? I'll update this comment with a picture of the painted headers, as I forgot to snap a pic before slipping them on. The outcome is pretty good for rattle can, but might try out a grill black enamel; I'm worried about the durability of the exhaust paint.

It's like one step forward and two steps back
No matter what I do you're always mad
And I, I can't change your mind
