The paint was sprayed, it's PX8 2 part with the clear mixed 1/1 with deadner. The flames I found on the net, you pick the style and size and they run off the peel and stick stencil. Once in the paint booth just line it up and peel the center part and spray, with time being money it's a cheap alternative. The flames are the same paint without the deadner.
It's getting dark but I got a couple shots of the motor;
The rusty panel is the access plate to the nitrous purge fitting in the cowl, looking at the pic reminds me I need to clean that up, LOL
The tank on the rad is an overflow tank for the power steering. The March billet pump assembly needs help to work with bigger tires.
The filter is for the tranny, the little plate on the fender is the electronic controller for the electric fan.
