Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

          looks good. I was a little skeptical about doing that to my car but I may consider it now. Looks better than I expected.

                          I was considering VHT'ing the markers black. extending herr "eye shadow"

                          would make her appear to be a burlesque woman. =)

                            I really like how they came out on your car. I think the red paint helps show the contrast between the headlights and the rest of the car. I'm slowly leaning towards doing it to my car. The side markers are sticking out a little more now that you did the headlights.

                              Woah.....this would look sweet on The Target as well, but question. How much, if any does it lower the brightness of your headlights?
